I can say I still got it. Hiked into Shi Shi Beach and Point-of-Arches, 8 miles round trip with a 25 pound camera bag + tripod on my back. A lollipop walk by the standards of my youth. But, at my advanced age, and since I don’t get out much like this anymore, it’s worthy.
Worthy, because in addition to out-and-back, I did 3 hours of photography once there. That meant hopping around rocks, exploring tide pools, and walking on sand both wet and dry.
Yes, I still got it and it’s good to be using it. Need to do more, more, more. Seriously.
1st image processed, below. Not to say it’s the best, because I’m glad to say I took so many excellent shots (my opinion) that I just chose this one at random from at least a dozen ‘keepers’ from the day. Most of the good shots had 2-10 second exposures.
