It’s been a strange start to the season, especially considering the almost arid seasons we’ve had recently. Winter pushed almost all the way up to christmas, and spring seems to be making it’s way steadily through what should be mid-summer. We had more snow through October than all of our ‘winter’ trips combined, and mid-January has seen the waterfalls at full-flow.
My ‘new’ 1965 Leica M2, here mounted with the tiny Voigtländer 35mm f2.5 Color Skopar. I’ve also picked up a nice Leitz Canada 90mm f2.8 Tele Elmarit, and am looking for deals on a Voigtländer 50mm f1.5 Nokton to complete the set.

And we’re back! After a winter chasing the northern lights, Californian home-brew, some festival about a bloke and a fire, and who knows what other oddities, the guiding crew are back on the island and trips are almost ready to go.
