One of the theories I have for "what gear should I bring this coming Fall to hike down into the Grand Canyon" is "just bring the X-E3 with the 27 pancake on it and be done."
- It doesn't get much smaller or lighter.
- I have an awesome little circular polarizing filter for it that makes...
If you're still using Apple's Aperture on your MacOS machines, even though Apple discontinued updating it back in 2014, you'll be facing an upgrade decision. MacOS Mojave will be the last version of the OS that will support running Aperture "for technical reasons". Apple's suggestion is to...

Frozen Sunset 1/250s F/4 ISO320 Shot at 40mm
I started out getting some close ups of various things around the yard covered in snow for my safety shots. As the day progressed it looked like there might be a nice sunset. It was cloudy but it was a thin layer.
A little after 4 I looked...
I was on my way home and found this scene. I altered the colour balance to give the sky a purplish tinge. Does it work?
I have a second version that I like just as much as this that was shot vertically which I will add to this post a bit later.
