With the arrival of a new (but second hand) mirrorless camera today, I am for the first time in almost a decade contemplating using the manual settings on a camera. I once owned a DSLR and enjoyed snapping away on walks in the mountains and moors of the UK, but alas that fell by the wayside and I have since spent many a year using the auto setting on a series of ‘point and shoot’ compact digital cameras. I have come to the realisation recently however that good quality photo content is a must to showcase my upcoming trip to Norway.

In celebration of rediscovering an old friend here’s a small selection of a few snaps from over the years. Hardly a pro, but I’ll enjoy getting my head around shutter speed and f stops again…
