Hi folks,

I was walking the dogs the other morning with no expectations of a photographic opportunity so I had left the 5D2 behind. Luckily I had my PowerShot G10 with me, bought for exactly such eventualities.

Normally the clump of trees is swamped (sic) by background mountains but the autumn mist did a great job of isolating them. The shot was taken from the shoreline just in front of the Roman Galava Fort at the head of Lake Windermere.

Bob.

Great shot Bob, beautiful country up there, it has an appealing calming effect.

Cheers

Hi folks,

Thanks for taking the time to comment. Certainly not amazing but I was looking for a "calming" effect during PP so I'm pleased that mood was picked up on. The detail available from the G10 still surprises me and the post above doesn't do it justice. I prepared a 1920x1080 version (here) for use in a Windows Media Center screen saver: at that size the ripples in the lake start to show up and I think that the tighter vertical crop also draws the eye into the scene rather better. Still, as a "happy snapper" I'm happy enough and I did want to reinforce the point that having a good pocketable camera can be a great investment. 8)

Bob.

Beautiful detail.. I never get really good picture in the mist, one day I arose early, went out to the backyard and the fog thru the trees was awesome..........
I tried my best to take pics and got nothing....low iso, long exposure, high iso, medium iso, exposure time all over the place, tripod used, etc....

I was shooting in RAW, went to full auto - flash off...camera wouldn't fire.
With flash on, I lost the effect...
