Nikon Z7ii - My First 3000 Shots

It has taken me a lot longer than anticipated but I've finally found the time to put together the  3000 shots with the Z7ii video . Thanks once again for the comments people left last time, it has been great to hear from you 🙂 So as the title says, I've now been through about 3000 shots with this new camera. This video isn't a review of the camera (there are plenty about) but I've been through some quick points at the start before I get into what I've been up to recently. I'm not really a fan of all the gear videos on YouTube and that's not what I want to produce, so you can skip over all that **if you're not bothered about the camera stuff. Usually I'd like to plan a trip or two away with a new camera body, but for the last 3-4 months I've not been able to go anywhere so you'll just have to deal. I'm not going to go over photos I've shown before, but if you're interested there's a couple of  other videos  available to watch

Mulberry Jam

I recently had the pleasure of sampling this quite fairly-hard-to-come-by jam, and I have to report that unfortunately it’s god damn delicious. And not made from handbags.


Looking rather like a blackberry or raspberry, the mulberry was a Jacobean fashion when it came to the UK and trees can still be found in the gardens of some stately homes, including Chastleton House in Oxfordshire and Charlecote Park, Warwickshire, where there is a receipt dated 1713 for the purchase and planting of a tree that is still flourishing.

The trees tend to grow fairly large and the fruit does not weather well after being harvested (they are quite soft and liable to explode when touched). This might have something to do with the commercial scarcity of the fruit and by extension the rarity of the jam shown opposite by Wilkin’s. Nowadays the best way to get your tongue around this genuine rarity would probably to grow yourself a tree and make the stuff yourself.

If you do get chance to sample it, or spot it at a supermarket/farm shop then snap it up quick. They don’t come around often. Enjoy with heart attack inducing pastry of choice. Very tasty.
