    Continuing my tradition of being woefully underequipped, I present some single-lens work from a hiking trip to Vermont (Stowe to be precise). I can thoroughly recommend both the place -- Vermont is beautiful -- and the idea of shooting with a single lens only.

    For this series, all images were taken with the E-M5 (still my wonderful workhorse after many years and trips) and the newly acquired Olympus 75mm f1.8... Weird choice for a forest hike and mountain climb, right? You be the judge!

    As ever, full size images (and a few more) available on Flickr... I hope you enjoy!

    The first few are from the trek through the forest to the peak:

    And now two from the peak:

    And one of my companions, for good measure:

    Sometimes being 'woefully underquipped' is just the right recipe for finding a magic sweet spot and expressing a consistent vision. I think you have managed to pull it off here: congratulations.
