Hi colleagues, Just back from the Christmas holidays. I've been traveling through the spanish north western area, from Ferrol to Ribadeo. We were contouring the coast and visiting the nice places over there. One of the nice places we visited was the "Souto da Retorta!, a nice forest of very old eucalyptus that have grown upto 80 meters high and 3,75 meters diameter. The days were gray and rainy, and I was carrying only the SD9 with the 18-50mm kit lens. (To get there from Barcelona we were flying with a low cost carrier that only allow for 10 kg weight per person, so we were forced to reduce the luggage to the minimum). With that lens, I had to shot at really low speeds (no tripod) and use ISO 200. Even with this setup, I like very much the results. Colours are realistic, and the pictures are better that the ones I could have taken with the Canon or the Pentax. Kind regards, Jes.
