[ad_1]FujiXAus Phillip Island Event Howling wind, rain, sleet, freezing cold and a massive sea that cut off our track could not stop us leading brave and hardy FujiXAus group on a tour of 6 kilometres of the Cape Woolamai Track including a stop at The Pinnacles and Two Caves.
I really enjoy these conditions because I always end up with a set of photos that I would not be able to get in calmer, more balmy times and they always have a unique look and feel to them.
As I always say, if your feet aren't wet you didn't try hard enough. I can confidently say that every one of these Fujifilm adventurers tried hard enough with the exception of the FujiXAus fearless leader Joe ... somehow he maintained dry feet. What's up with that Joe?
Here's a collection of images from the afternoon. Most were shot with a Fujifilm XT2 and a Samyang 12mm f/2.0. The others were shot with a Fujifilm XT10 and a 1984 Soviet-made Tair 300mm f/4.5. These were shot in pelting rain and sleet with a 40-50k wind.
Special thanks to the organisers Ian Tan and Joe Jongue, to Fujifilm X Series AU for the very nice promotional goodies and also very special thanks to my mates Randall and Cat of The Sheltered Glamping Co. for hosting the group in awesome glamping accommodation.
