Walking in Wales: An Olympus OM-D E-M5 gallery

Last week, during Carnival Break in Italy, I scooped up the opportunity to return to Wales, UK to spend some time with my parents. I had never been to Wales during the winter, so I was curious to see how the already wooly and wild landscape had adapted to colder temperatures. To document the trip, I brought along the Olympus OM-D E-M5, a mirrorless camera which is known for its ability to bring out the best colour in any landscape, even one as rugged as the Welsh coast.

In the end, I had one brilliantly sunny day out of eight. The other seven days were either cloudy, misty or rainy, typical of the region during this time of the year. Know that, in Wales, a ray of sunshine is more than just a ray of sunshine. It is a painter’s brush, which turns a bleak canvas into a wild array of bright lush colours that you’ll only find in countries where it rains 95% of the time. In Wales, you can find intense greens which in other parts of the world do not exist. My photographic interest was to see a) how well the OM-D E-M5 could bring out the hidden colours of the landscape on a dark day, and b) how it handled the intensity of the colours when the sun showed its face.

As you will see, the results are quite pleasing. Enjoy!
