It’s getting near to the peak of autumn colour now. The lake district is wonderful at this time and between Grasmere, Ambleside and Langdale is particularly good. The light wasn’t at its best but it wasn’t too bad, a soft overcast with occasional brightness. At least there wasn’t any wind, so most of my pictures ended up nice and sharp.
I took both my Olympus OMD-EM10 and Pentax K20D. Stupidly, I’d forgotten the memory card for the Pentax. I was shooting mostly with the Olympus but I got the Pentax out to use the long lens I have for it. I had the bright idea I could take the SD card out of the Olympus and put it in the Pentax and this worked fine. Then I put it back in the Olympus – uh-oh! I turned it on and saw “Card Error” written in red on the display. Scary. To cut a long story short, I put it back in the Pentax and deleted the picture I’d taken with it, then back in the Olympus and it worked again.
Moral of the story – don’t share cards between cameras without trying it out first. Second moral – don’t forget your memory card in the first place! I remember once going out to take photos and remembering everything – filters, tripod, remote release – but forgetting the camera.
