Getting out into the great outdoors brings positive and healthy energy to your life. And, if you’re a keen landscape photographer, you will have an extra incentive to tear yourself away from the computer screen and go exploring. 

However, carrying lots of kit can be quite cumbersome so, today, I’ve decided to travel light, packing just my compact Fujifilm X100V and a Manfrotto Pixi Evo mini tripod for stability. I often attach my camera to the mini tripod, sling it over my shoulder and begin my trek to my desired shooting location. I’m aiming for Crook Peak,
a small rocky formation popular with walkers in Somerset’s Mendip Hills in the UK.
