Daily Inspiration #445 – Fuji 14mm f/2.8 in Peru by Eric Hodges
Attached are images from my Fuji X-E1 and 14 2.8 in Peru from this past July and August. We were there for almost a month. We did the classic Huayhuash trek and then climbed two mountains, Yanapaccha and Chopicalqui, in the Cordillera Blanca.

I shot almost exclusively with the Fujinon XF 14MM F2.8 R, which worked out great. I kept the camera in my jacket when up on the mountains. The batteries were kept in an inside pocket close to my chest. It was very nice to have a high quality camera that was much lighter than a DSLR when climbing and trekking at altitude. On the second mountain, Chopicalqui, I climbed to 6100m (20,013 ft.).

The best photos from the trip are here:
The trip was at fairly high altitudes. On the Huayhuash trek we were usually at 4200m (13,799 ft.) or higher. We went over 10 passes and the lowest pass was 4600m (15,092 ft.) and we did two passes at 5000m (16,404 ft.).
