All credit to Andy (Flump) for the photos. :D
I really must get a decent camera, maybe a Sony, as suggested recently. :wink: (thanks ML)
Cheers

I have the Sony RX100, pretty good for a compact camera. I got it January last year but still haven't bothered to learn any of the settings, I think everything is at default. :D
There's also a RX100 v2 and v3 out now, although I'm unsure what changes they've made.

That was a great read and your photos sum it all up perfectly. Excited for you that you saw your first inversion AND brocken spectre. Glad to hear that it was worth while carrying all that weight!

That looks a fabulous trip! Good effort and some fantastic photographs to boot. Bet you will remember this one for a very long while, something to tell the family in a few years time :D
