Autumn Equinox Last Day of Summer Hike

After a bitter cold morning on this Autumn equinox, the sun began to shine and the perfect hiking temperature of 24ºC was on the cards. I hadn’t created my adventure videos in a long time due to the Covid-19 lockdown and found this to be the perfect opportunity to restart.

I always keep my backpack pre-packed with essential gear and my pro cameras Nikon D750 and Fuji X100v ready to go. Captured some great photographs for sure. I always say, preparation is key to grabbing spontaneous opportunities! The period around the Autumn equinox produces some of the most wonderful natural lighting.
