Normally when we visit Cornwall the weather, even in Summer, can be a bit mixed but this year has been exceptionally good. I pretty much always have a camera with me while away and the Fuji X-T2 is the perfect choice being fairly compact, while also delivering great images.
From a photographic point of view, clear blue skies are a bit boring but when you have gorgeous beaches like these in Newquay and St Ives, you can live with it! Quite a few of these pictures were taken on the wide angle 10-24mm f4 Fuji lens. I do like the wide angle of view for this type of image. A few were also taken on the 50-140mm lens, another superb piece of glass.
This year I took a few more sunset pictures than normal – there’s something nice about being on the coast as the sun goes down, especially when the coastline is as beautiful as this…
