Here are some pictures my wife and I took on our road trip. We drove and camped our way from Texas to Canada. The fire towers we stayed at were in Montana and Idaho.
Most of the pictures were taken with GH1 some with the GX7. I know the GX7 is a better camera, but the GH1 just feels right to me, I am at home with it. I tend to baby the GX7, but feel comfortable letting the GH1 bounce around and get dusty in front of the pickup. Perhaps when the new wears off of the GX7 I will use it more. I also used my Canon s110 a lot, it lives in the pickup, but I only posted pics from the MFT cameras.

I recently took a longer overdue trip with my wife to see the Sossusvlei in Namibia. For those who don't know, the Sossusvlei is a famous and unbelievably beautiful location in the Namib desert, on the South-West coast of Africa. For the duration of the trip I used only my EM-5 and PanaLeica 25mm. There were moments where I missed having a longer lens, but all in all i t was a fantastic and rewarding challenge to use only the 25. I cannot recommend Namibia enough to photographers.
It takes roughly 6 hours to get to the desert from Windhoek, Namibia's capital. We traveled with a small group, and arrived at the desert as the sun set on the first day. The lodgings were very well appointed semi-permanent tents:

We woke before dawn on the second day to make the (non-trivial) journey from the desert edge to the Sossusvlei. The dawn light creates the famous "S" curve on the dunes, and creating impressive contrasts in the sand:

Making our way through the desert to the Sossusvlei area, we embarked on a climb of the biggest dune in the Namib, "Big Daddy". Rising some 300m (~1000ft) above the desert floor, this was one of the more exhausting climbs I've done. The sand makes way beneath your feet, so every step forward is a half step back....
With #4 we head downunder, now this will really throw the clocks out
The theme for #4 is "man" and water, i.e, there should be an element of "man" (e.g. man-made, a person or some other aspect referencing "man") and water in your photo, so at minimum those two elements are to be in your image. Other than that you are free too interpret the theme any way you see fit. This is for fun after all.
It would be great and I think it adds to the photos if you can add a little context around your entries. This isn't mandatory, but including information on the camera and lens along with the location and any relevant history or significance of the subject makes the entry more interesting.
Please post a single image that represents the theme. The deadline to post entries to this challenge will be Tuesday, July 28 at 00:00 [12 AM] GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). (I have gone with GMT to hopefully make it easier for every one to work out their local time. Also we have two full weekends in which to shoot. Having the contest begin and end midweek will likely maximize opportunities for those of us who aren't retired.)
After that, voting will remain open through 00:00 [12 AM] GMT on July 29. Votes will be tallied, and a winner will be announced Wednesday evening GMT +8, and then the next challenge should be posted by the winner soon after.
- A single "theme" will be provided for each challenge. These can specify a particular subject (e.g. "trees", "vehicles", "animals", "water"), a shooting/post processing method ("black and white", "shot in M-mode (manual)", "blur", "multiple exposure") or it can be more ephemeral ("happy", "orange", "renewal", "symmetry"). Note: since our audience is global, themes that reference a particular season of the year should be avoided.
- Each challenge will run for a period of two weeks. This should give...
My wife and I took our honeymoon at the end of June (nearly a year after we got married), spending 4 days in London, and 2 days at the Goodwood Festival of Speed down in Chichester (down on the southern cost of England). Below are some images from our time spent in London (a fantastic city BTW).
All images shown below were shot on my GH4, with either the Panasonic 25mm, 12-35, or 35-100, however I also used my Panasonic 15mm and 45-175. For the long exposure shots, they were done with either a Panasonic 3-stop or Haida 10-stop ND filter on my 12-35.
Some of these images are cross posted from my "Long Exposures with GH4" thread in the Panasonic section, but seeing that this section is for travel I thought I would post some of them here as well (along with some other images).
Below are links to the flickr albums from our trip.

I appreciate you checking out the below images, as well as any comments you may have. Cheers!
St. Ermin's Hotel in Westminster, about a 5 minute walk from Buckingham Palace. My wife and I stayed here for the duration of our vacation (thanks Marriott points!)
Speaking of Buckingham Palace, I shot this on our last evening there at roughly 9:30 PM. A 4 minute 17 second exposure.
We also visited the Natural History Museum. Below is a 3 minute 26 second exposure.
Hi all, sharing images of New York from my trip this year. NYC has always been one of my favorite city. Love the energy and beauty of this great place. Plenty of nice spots to take pictures as well.
