Regular readers of this blog would know that I use both Olympus and Fuji cameras. I may happen to occasionally use another brand, but it will probably be for testing/review purposes. Although I started shooting Olympus m43 cameras exclusively more than 3 years ago, during the last year or so I also entered the X-System and, today, use is practically equally divided between the two.
As I mentioned previously, such photographic excursions are a great opportunity to try doing different things. Especially while setting out to the countryside, most people would think landscape, wildlife and, generally, nature-inspired photography. Instead, it's better to think of means of breaking out of a rut and challenging yourself. After all, you are in vacation; it makes no sense keep on doing what you do all year long.
Late during last August, I decided on a short roadtrip (mainly) on the mountains of central Greece. More specifically, in the regional units of Phthiotis and Evrytania, which happen to also be the largest in mainland Greece. Since I actually have relatives in Phthiotis I know and have traveled to these parts quite a bit, so I was able to detail a plan beforehand.
