Farewell to a Friend

Uploaded: September 27, 2019 | Entered: September 27, 2019 00:00:00


Sunset at Bass Harbor Light where my X-T30 bit the dust after a short 4 month run. Unfortunately, while I was setting up, I mistracked it in the Arca Swiss tripod head and it fell on the rocks. However, it continued to work through the evening, this being one of the last shots it took. The next day, it would shoot, but it would not save any images.

Exif: Camera: FUJIFILM X-T30; Shutter Speed: 8/1; Aperture: f/16.0; ISO: 160; Orientation: ; Date: 2019:09:28 00:32:45
