Re: Day Hiking Advice or inspiration

Lots of good advice already.

One thing I am surprised no one mentioned, unless I missed it, is get a UV filter for your lenses.  Less of a filter than to protect the lens.  Also allows you to ditch the lens cap, so one less thing to fiddle with.   Just inspect periodically and wipe with a micro fiber cloth as needed.

Keep it simple at first. Have fun with the outdoors and taking pictures.   Build your skills.  Get familiar with your camera and settings.  I know you will likely be in a hurry a lot of times but be on the constant look out trying to visualize a good shot. Once you decide on a shot, slow down. Think about the compesition, settings etc as if you are only going to be able to take a single shot as opposed to just shooting a lot of frames.
