Race Brook Falls Trail. Southwest Massachusetts.
We hiked up the Race Brook Falls Trail (the trail I maintain for the Berkshire AMC) today and it was a beautiful day for hiking and for photography.
I was surprised that this waterfall still had ice on it as did sections of the brook; the weather has been warm enough down at our house that I thought for sure this would have all melted.
There was some sun flare coming in from the top left but I liked the image anyway.
This was shot with the Fuji X70, a small camera that’s much like the Ricoh GR. I don’t have enough experience with it yet to talk about it with any certainty but I was able to shoot with it with my glove liners on which is important to me in winter as I suffer from Raynaud’s syndrome (cold finger tips) and like to keep thin gloves on at all times. And, unlike the Ricoh, it has an articulating LCD which I find useful (not for this photo but for others). The image quality of the few images I’ve shot with it is breathtakingly good. This is a very nice camera and one worth considering along with the Ricoh GR II.
