I have been using a homemade viewfinder recently which helps compose the composition (previously I've used my phone & taken pics) The viewfinder helps with what subject areas to include, which format - square, landscape or portrait. Plus horizon line level. The horizon was very hazy, no sea or the Isle of Wight showing. Just an orange strip.
I was at the top of quite a steep long path, and it was busy! Cylist, runners, dog walkers. Everyone saying hello and I had to stop myself giving the runners encouragement 'nearly there don't stop....' :-)
