Fairy Mist by Peter Nutkins

A 'Fairy Pool' beneath the Black Cuillin Mountains, Isle of Skye. The green and blue waters of the River Brittle are almost other worldly.

This will be my last post here on Pentax Forums.

I have really tried to make the portrait side of my business work with the Pentax K-1, but I have finally given in and converted to Nikon. This is only really due to AF. It came home to me on a shoot where I missed yet another absolute hero shot - while my K-1 hunted about. It was the shot (or not shot) of the whole day....

I have really enjoyed Pentax and have really enjoyed the support and friendship at Pentax Forums.

It is a sad day for me and I am quite emotional about it all......

Thank you for all of your encouragement and help over the last few years.

Kindest regards

Peter

Hello Peter,

as you, I left the Pentax family (about a year and a half ago, in my case). The 645z was a wonderful camera, but lack of lenses (among other things) made me say goodbye to the system and I now use Leica only for all my work. However, as others pointed out, you can keep posting here (as I do) even if you took your images with other cameras. Great job at the Fairy Pools, one of my favourite places on Skye! Looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future. Best regards,

Vieri
Thank you Vieri

I am certainly going to hang around and keep in touch.....all the best, Peter
