Pancake lens on a cross-country skiing trip

A while ago I bought a used 10mm f/2.8 pancake lens for my V1.
Idea for it came while I was going for a run and I noticed that 10-30mm and 18.5mm lenses were too long lenses to put in the pocket.

Like the other Nikon 1 -lenses 10mm f/2.8 lens is also a good performer. Shooting wide open is not a problem at all. I think this lens would be better paired with J1/J2/J3/S1 cameras, because those are already smaller. I think I might get one of those as a backup some day :)
Here are couple shots from that 20km cross-country skiing trip.

Always carry a camera with you

Today when I was driving from work I noticed a really great sunset. Better than what I have seen for weeks. Luckily I had my V1 with me ( of course ). I knew I was late, but I quickly drove near a hill nearby and ran on top of the hill.
I didn't have enough clothes for shooting long when the temperature was -10 celsius, but managed to get couple good photographs. Here is one.

Being in a right place in right time

Today it happened. Mainly I was just location scouting in a park, because it was a really overcast morning and I didn't have much ideas. Then some clouds cleared away from a sun and created some really cool effect on the other side of the lake.
It lasted only couple minutes, but it was enough.

Happy new year!

One great thing in Nikon V1 is that is has built in interval timer. So shooting fireworks is just putting the camera on a tripod and setting the camera to shoot with 5 seconds interval. It's a little bit boring, but effective. I used here 3 seconds shutter speed.
