2019_01_24 : Hosting server update

Today I left work a bit early… and I rushed home, packed my bag with the new D850 and some lenses. Mostly long lenses, the 24-70mm, the 105mm macro, the 70-200mm and finally the 200-500mm. Almost forgot my try-pod…On top I packed my Mavic Air… With a heavy backpack I got my bike out and headed towards the woods around my home. Interestingly enough I spotted some nice coloured trees from the highway, so I thought that most trees got…
