A couple of days ago, Fuji released yet another firmware update for its excellent X-body cameras and lenses. As I was allowed a two hour playtime window by my wife dearest this afternoon, I quickly updated my beloved X-E1 and all of my lenses before finally heading out with the XF35.
My goal was not too far away, about a twenty minutes' drive. I have passed numerous times through Moestroff and always wondered about its castle, so I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to finally pay it a visit.
Upon arrival in Moestroff, I saw this marvellous old building and couldn't help but snap a few shots :-)
I continued towards the castle, but was a bit disappointed when I noticed that it was now converted into a private property and not open to public. Fortunately I had a plan b: Vianden!
Before I left, I snapped a quick shot of this little guy ;-)
Well, my trip to Vianden didn't quite turn out as I had hoped. It was impossible to find a parking space! Gorgeous weather + beautiful and historic old town + holiday season = traffic chaos. I certainly would have found a spot if I had had more patience, alas time was running out, so I decided to call it quits for today.
Ah well... another time...
On my way home though, I decided to check out another way, and boy, am I glad I did!
I the end, this drive was really worth it as I tremendously enjoyed this hidden gem. Luxembourg's really small, yet there's always something (or somewhere) new to discover :-)
P.s. one final word on the Fujifilm updates: so far I've tried the XF60 (waaaaayyyy faster + accurate focusing than before!) and XF35 lenses (focusing speed also increased, but this wasn't as bad as the XF60 + it seems to me that the minimum focusing distance has been reduced, without having to enter macro mode... I might be mistaken on this one, but it's a purely subjective feeling).
