  • Bright and Breezy

    It was a lovely sunny morning today so I decided to go for a walk from Lowestoft, via Lake Lothing, to Oulton Broad and back again. A few birds provided interest along the way but the wind was fresh and icy and my fingers were frozen after taking photographs. I wonder if the E-M1 Mark II will have a heated handgrip when it arrives.

          Nice shots Ron.

          I still haven't seen a Redwing or Fieldfare this year, odd.

            A great set Ron.

            The Redwing is very good, I only ever seem to see them sitting on the ground.

            Thanks for sharing.

              Good trio of shots Ron, the Redwing stands out though.

                Lovely colour and clarity in those shots Ron. A heated grip that would be "cool"

                  Nice Redwing shot, no fieldfares or redwings in my area this year, holly berries still there!

                      I like the redshank. A good shot.

                        Lovely shots.

                        In the real world (!) I recommend these (not cheap, but very warm and there are cheaper versions without the leather palms):

                          Re: Bright and Breezy

                          Many thanks for all the kind comments.

                          Thanks for the link to the mittens Mark. I normally use a pair of traditional leather gloves with knitted linings, as they are quite warm, water resistant and wind proof. They are also grippy enough to allow me to use my binoculars with them on. However they are too clumsy to operate the tiny controls on the E-M1 so I have to remove them to do that and that is when I get cold fingers.

                          Those mittens look worth consideration, so I will try a pair when I see something like them in a store. It doesn't look as if the heated hand grip will make it into production.

                            They do look a bit odd, it must be said, when you're using them with the various bits flapped back, but it's worth it IMHO.

                              Oh, yes, I should also mention that I've also got a pair of Sealskins water- and wind-proof conventional gloves where the tips of the forefingers and thumbs can be folded back to be held by little magnets. These are also good, but like most Sealskins gloves I find they get a bit sweaty and clammy with prolonged wear.
