A little bit of everything - E-M1 style
 
I thought I'd put a few photos together for the E-Group ImageSpace gallery and in doing so post a few sample photos of some of the assignments that my E-M1 has been put to in recent months (plus one taken with the E-30). So a mixed bag with no theme is the result!
All have been taken with wither the Olympus m-Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens or the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 APO EXII lens.

So good! Enjoyed them all, but the one I returned to was the RAF Typhoon.

A very fine set.

The rowers I love for it's graphical qualities and I also enjoy the weir very much. The Corenside Landscapes are up there as well with great light.

cheers

Many thanks for all the positive comments - much appreciated.
My fav of the selection is probably the rowers at Durham; I love the mass of details in the water caused by the oars, the drips, etc., all of which have been highlighted by the water being so dark while the raised ripples catch the light.
The biggest 'shout of joy' came with the Typhoon parachute brake; I had placed myself at the end of the runway to catch a variety of Swedish and UK aircraft returning to their hard standings after their sorties. And the sight of the relatively rare parachute opening to help slow down the aircraft as it landed at the far end of the runway was rewarded by the Typhoon continuing straight towards my camera for a near perfect set of symmetrical images.
Of the other photographs, the beached landing craft was another rare event and a lucky benefit of a planned night of no sleep and my arrival at the D-Day landing beach of a major exercise as the tide retreated too quick for the Dutch landing craft! The Corsenside cloudscapes were a result of a really good viewpoint and our amazingly varied spring weather - many people wouldn't have bothered heading out due to the clouds, but if you can find a good vantage point it's amazing how often the sun does try to pierce through clouds, to create rewards like this image.
When I look back at many of my photographs over recent months, it is amazing how much I use the wonderful Sigma 70-200mm APO EXII as a 'standard lens'!

And after a week of the E-M1 being away at the Olympus service and repair centre in Portugal as a result of the detached strap eyelet, I feel it's like a long long friend coming home today, if DHL make good the schedule!

Again, many thanks
Regards
Chris
