The Lower Lake

Lower Lake

To aid in Julie producing a sofobomo entry this year, we took a spin out to Glendalough on Monday evening. First time in a few years I’ve been there when the sun is going down. Apart from the swarms of blood thirsty midges, it’s a great place to be when the light levels are dropping. The above, in case anyone cares, is the X100 at a 20th of a second, ƒ8 at 2500ISO. I think by the end of the trip I was pushing it up as far as 3200ISO while all the time being amazed at what this little camera can do.

My sofobomo isn’t going ahead, despite several half-assed plans on what I was going to do. Maybe next year.


  1. I hate this location because it’s shot so bloody much, but this is really rather good. I’ve been tracking x100 photos online for a few weeks and I’ve been pretty impressed with the output. At the end of the day, gear aside, it is all about the shot but I can’t help get the feeling that beasts such as the x100 force you think a different way resulting in, well, shots like this!
