No excursions today, just taking some photos locally in Taunton with the GRD4. I've been tinkering with the focus settings and I think I might give the "auto snap" focus mode a go. This mode is a sort of "hybrid" autofocus mode as it has a phase detect AF window which gives a rough AF distance and then the conventional contrast detect AF will fine tune the AF. This shot was done with manual focus but it would be interesting to see how well the hybrid AF works. This is a good example of a type of shot where BW seems to work better. There are a lot of distracting background colours - shop signs etc, so mono seems to work better. I have use the "BW1" preset in RawTherapee.
