I have three main pastimes which I love to do, and today on my travels I thought how they all compliment each other. These are they.....
Here in Yorkshire, England we have some of the finest and most beautiful walking country in the world and also some of the wettest weather! For me, getting out into the hills, dales, tors and valleys of The Shire and it's surrounding areas with my camera over my shoulder is a perfect day but of course you need decent kit to accompany you for when the weather turns and here is where the mornings watch selection takes on paramount importance. Comfy, robust and of course water proof are the key factors. Can there be any other choice?
I like to photograph my watches, and I like to photograph my hikes. I like to photograph my watches while i hike! I need to know that my watch can cope with the quickly changing weather on the hill tops of northern England!
When the sun shines
and when it rains
it's all in a days work for this little Boctok! No problems here, up in the hills of the Peak District at the Ladybower / Derwent reservoirs, where the famous 617 Squadron and their Lancaster bombers practiced their 'Dam Buster' run in WWII.
A photo opportunity not to be missed. A marvel of post Victorian British engineering (Derwent Dam) and a marvel of post Soviet engineering (Vostok Amphibian) meet face to face.
Just before the heavens open once again!
For my money, hiking + photography + watches = the perfect team!
How do your watches compliment your pastimes?
