Taking It Easy (Oregon with the Fuji X-Pro1)

Last week my family and I took a trip south along the Oregon coast. Despite our intentions to rest and spend quality family time, I found some time to take photos. My camera of choice was the Fuji X-Pro1 with all three lenses along with a Kenco polarizing filter. While I usually avoid filters, this time I knew that occasionally I would be forced to shoot at midday. As usual, I was able to capture scenes I would otherwise have missed with the heavy SLR gear sitting in my hotel room. With one exception I didn’t have a plan and decided to enjoy my time with the family and go with the flow. Sometimes taking it easy and avoiding the pressure to be on time for the right light is a liberating experience.  

The colour and sharpness I got from the Fuji primes continue to impress. All images were processed in Lightroom 4 with sharpening done in Sharpener Pro.

Here are the results.
