Canada 150 Travel Photography & Fuji X-A3 Camera Giveaway!

Our summer road trip across Eastern Canada was fabulous. If you haven't had a chance to read about it yet, click here to find those posts. I had so many photos I wanted to share with you that I couldn't fit them all into those posts!

The photos I'll share today are some of my favourite photographs without people in them and I think they really showcase the kind of photography the Fuji X-A3 is capable of. At the end of the post, you'll have a chance to win your own Fuji X-A3 camera in a giveaway!





I touched on how the X-A3 camera came in handy on our Canada 150 road trip in my post about the camera and re-embracing my love of photography. In that post I shared some family selfies that we were happy to get with the camera's flip screen. This post is all about the photos I took to document the beautiful sites around us.


Something that I love about the X-A3, for travel in particular, is that it's so small and lightweight. It's very easy to carry with you wherever you're going (which isn't the case with a DSLR).


Whether you want to use manual settings or the presets, it's got a range of capabilities from distant landscape photography, to close-up macro detail shots. I love a good close-up shot with a blurred background.


As a photographer, I love to capture memories, but I also want to do it with high quality photos! So I'm very pleased with what I was able to come away with, with the X-A3!


When I look through the photos I was able to capture with this camera during our trip, I'm impressed with their quality. If I didn't know better, I'd think they were taken with my DSLR. 


I love the detail you can see from the hill in the background to the flowers in the forefront of this photo, and I'm so happy with the bold colours that it captured. The photo is very true to the real life experience as we arrived at Cavendish beach!


I love the depth of this photo, with the blowing grass in the foreground and the distant rain in the very background. It takes me right back to that day!


There's also a night setting that allowed me to get this shot of Quebec City at night. I love that I can still see the colour in the sky! I'd love to experiment more with this setting and see what I can get.


Now you've heard all about our trip across Eastern Canada and you've read a lot about the Fuji X-A3 mirrorless camera, too. As my sharing on these subjects comes to an end, how would you like a chance to win your own Fuji X-A3 camera?
