    Here in the U.S., you can find yourself behind retirees in large, slow RVs in the most scenic parts of the country. They are trying to do what you are doing, but with less physical endurance for the adventure.

    You will have these times in your memory for decades to come, plus thousands of photos. When you feel it is time to settle, it won’t come with resentment for things left undone.

    BTW… love the portrait of your dog made with that wide-open 35mm f/1.4. Everytime I’m sure I don’t need one, I see a fine example of its rendering and then I have to keep telling myself that my f/2 version is good enough.

    Thanks for sharing your passion. We recently purchased a motorhome and have started traveling the U.S. mostly concentrating on the National Parks. I really enjoyed your article and photographs. We just completed our first journey to the Great Smoky Mountains, National Park. If you have time visit my blog to see our first adventure.

    Thank You!

    Thanks for the kind words.

    The 35mm 1.4 is a beauty of a lens. Beautiful rendition despite its poor noisy autofocus. That being said if it’s not being used for moving subjects it’s definitely worth getting. I love its character and I think it adds to the more vintage feel as a walk around lens

      Good read, thanks! I find that the xf35 1.4 is more than fast enough on my X-Pro2, but you might have different needs. With regards to reach and landscape photography, I just bought an old canon fd 85mm, for landscape and portraits. Look forward to isolating the frame as you mention in the article.

    Hello Mitchell,

    Great read! Would love to know some more of your editing process. How do you take your raw image into LR mobile and such. This has typically been a huge pain for me and would love to see how you’ve manage.
    Best,

      Thanks Emmanuel,

      As for importing and editing via mobile, I have used a usbc memory card transfer dongle. Through this i can access my raw files through the files app on android. From there i cull my images and copy them into another app (Quickpick).

      Once all images have been chosen and transferred over I can them import them into lightroom mobile.

      It’s a relatively simple yet not particularly efficient method though I don’t tend to have hundreds of images to cull from each session so there’s that. It’s by no means as effective as using a pc/Mac but for financial reasons I’m only able to use mobile at the present. And it will suffice until I can get hold of an iPad pro.
