First hike of the year (2019)

A good start to the warmer months of outdoor activities. Today myself and a pal hiked Hen and Cock mountain in the Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland. We had intended to fit Pigeon mountain in too, but a low flying cloud engulfed us and stripped visibility to zero, unfortunately.

We did the sensible thing and took to lower ground, which led us back towards an old, slate-carving river, and ultimately back to the car.

I shot a lot of photos with the Nikon in-hand, which I will post in a few days.

Additionally, last weekend myself and my SO headed out in our campervan for the first time this year that will have a separate write-up when I get around to developing the film.

Superior Organisational Potential

I have always obsessed over backpack functionality and organisation. It’s beneficial to have everything you need/desire when hiking, exploring or even if just going for a walk in the local woods, or on top of the hills for a cup of tea.

More Camera Gear

My local setup is a Trek bag from Lowepro, which enables me to carry more camera gear than before, and still have additional space for supplies and essentials.

Perfect for carrying multiple cameras, safety equipment and even has space for a bluetooth speaker so can hike with audio (it’s going to be blasting Sublime today as it’s sunny outside).
