Parco Europa in the Sun: A Sony NEX-5K Gallery

As many of our readers know, it has been raining for weeks on end here in Turin. In fact, considering all the days between Easter and now, you can hardly count the sunny days on one hand.

What a relief it was, then, when the forecast predicted a week – yes, a full week – of hot balmy weather. Since Mat was out on a job, I decided to take a walk to the nearby Parco Europa near the small town of Cavoretto, up in the Torinese hills. In the five years I’ve lived here, I’ve never visited the park, mainly because it is in the opposite direction to the centre of the city and where I work, so it was a pleasure to wander around the gardens, hunting down butterflies, eating ‘gelato’ and watching humanity at its most relaxed.

Below, you’ll find a gallery of the Parco Europa taken with the Sony NEX-5K, the camera I have currently been testing. It truly is a nice little camera to have on hand, especially for landscape shots. (By the way – yes, I know, I clumsily used 800 ISO for all my shots. I blame it on the excitement caused by actually seeing the sun for once! 😉)
