Brecon Beacons NP is a blast

Can anyone tell why did it take me 32 years to visit Wales? Just trekking through a Brecon Beacons NP and here are some impressions. Taxi driver didn’t try to rob me and actually charged me way less than I have expected. The shop assistant in supermarket brought me an empty shopping basket in the middle of a Co-op and carried my (very heavy) full one to the cashier so I could go on with shopping comfortably. Food in pubs is heavy but delicious. Guinness still tastes like a piss. The nature here is JUST incredible. Cold nights even in July, wondering what are the temperatures during a winter. Bloody love it in here!!

Goodbye Canon. And now - Nikon or Sony?

I have been waiting for Canon 6DII for ages. Now when the waiting is over, I know that my path with Canon is at its very end. The question is - will be Nikon D820 (possibly D850) everything I need? Can I somehow avoid swichting to Sony which I’m pushing away from me for last 14-16 months? The reality is that dynamic range of all Canon bodies is nowadays such terrible comparing to other brands that although I hate switching anything in my life, the moment of a big change is knocking at the door.

Hello?! Who’s there?

Peter Habeler in Prague

It is always fascinating to meet people who actually achieved something really impressive and have a story to tell. Famous Austrian climber Peter Habeler is certainly one of those. He is so different when compared to his climbing buddy Reinhold Messner. Habeler is always chatty and smiling and that is something you can’t say about Messner. In the interview in Prague Habeler told me that Messner was always like that. For most of the time silent and not a funny person at all. But always 100 percent professional. And from my point of view, that is the reason they were the best climbing duo ever…
