Spent last weekend driving to Syke and generally enjoying my car and the chat with some good friends. Met up with NottsRS (James) his brother Nik and some of their friends on their way back down from Skye. Excellent trip enjoying the cars doing what they were designed to do. I took a few pictures but haven't managed to edit many yet. I will post more when I get a chance.

Great Photos Tom thumbsup

What a great trip, 1814kms, some of the best roads I've ever driven, stunning scenery, surprisingly good weather, great company.. My 64RS never missed a beat and relished the rapid progress mile after mile after mile. My ears are still ringing now though.

Superb photos! Mr. Green Tell me they weren't taken on your iPhone Very Happy

I love the way you've captured the movement through that hairpin.

I was up there about a year ago - amazing driving roads.

Now you're teasing!

So what was it if not your phone? Decent kit or are you just an amazing photographer? Smile

I'm just interested because I'm toying with the idea of getting a new camera.

Sorry Very Happy not meaning to be cryptic. I have an Olympus E-M5MarkII, really like the camera. It does lots of things I don't even attempt to use. The real attraction for me is the size and quality, no need to go for a full frame camera, this does everything and more. I always shot in raw and then edit in Lightroom.

Thanks for the positive comment on the pictures. I really enjoy photography and I am really just a beginner who is keen to learn.

Cheers

Tom
