A belated hello!

Hi guys, I joined the forum earlier in the year when I purchased the fantastic K1 and had a couple of questions to ask but I never introduced myself!
I've been browsing the forum alot lately and quite fancy getting involved.
I'm a keen landscape photographer and so I hope I can pass on some help and advice where needed.

A little about me, I'm 27, from the UK and I'm a Yorkshireman in the Royal Air Force, I've spent the last 3 years living in beautiful Cornwall and at the start of the year I moved to the top of Scotland, so I'm very fortunate to have lived in 3 amazing places! (handy for a landscape photographer!)

I've owned Nikon & Canon dslr's, a fujifilm Xt1 and now the K1, it's the ultimate landscape camera in my eye, I have the 28-105 which is an amazing lens for the price and until I can afford the 15-30, I have an smc 20mm F4 (not quite up to scratch for the K1 sensor but it'll do for now)

Anyway, I hope to see you all around on the forum.
Here's a couple of my photos taken with the K1

Hi Simon, and welcome from Hampshire. Brilliant photos! (From someone who uses the second-best landscape and field camera!)

Thank you! Haha, can I ask what the second best camera is? It may well be the best in your eyes😁
