Spring at the Old Quarry Lake by Geoffrey Gimse on Exposure
It was a good day to escape the inside. It was far too warm and too sunny to stay cooped up. After this past week, I needed some time outside.
I took a quick trip north to Harrington Beach State Park. That state park is rapidly becoming my go-to spot when I’m looking for an easy hike and time to just get away from the chaos of the day-to-day. It’s close enough not be a major time sink and far enough away that I can forget about things at home and really focus on the moment.
Of course, I also wanted a chance to play with my Sony A6000. I wasn’t sure if I would like a mirrorless camera. I’ve been a DSLR user for a long time and I was very reluctant to switch. After today, I am pleased. The focus response time is great, and I love the flexibility of the screen. Plus the camera is so incredibly light. It felt like a point-and-shoot, but with a lot more capability.
