February in the Lake District with the X Pro1

The weather wasn't looking particularly inviting, but you don't go to the Lakes for the weather - especially in February!

The rain and the cloud made for a very moody feel, and fantastic saturated colours. I also had my new Lee Big Stopper in my bag and was eager to give it a try. The first image was from my first attempt - stupidly, I had left the ISO on 500, so it was a 60 sec exposure, but I think it works well and I am very happy with it. After that, the rain made it too difficult to keep the filters clear.

The more I use my X Pro1, the more I love it! Who needs an XT1 !!

A day out on the Ravenglass to Dalesgarth railway completed a restful couple of days. I love the Lake District, whatever the weather!
