Hello from South Wales. First DSLR user heading to Iceland

Hey all,

Just got myself a Pentax K-R with 18-55 DA kit lens, came with everything in the box with 5700 clicks registered. Due to a 10 day trip to Iceland where I'm hiring a car, I decided I needed a decent Camera (last time I went to Iceland I used a Nikon Bridge) now I have two months to learn how to use it!

I've had a pretty successful weekend shooting some shots after looking through the manual, the book "understanding exposure" and looking on YouTube.

Heres to a new hobby!

I've posted a big post asking about Lenses for Iceland if anyone can help, in lens discussion
