Out in the hills again

Last night [Sat] Roger, Dougal and myself headed off to check out some sunset photos south of the Snow Farm. It was very cold at 1500 meters, but a lovely walk. The sunset was spoilt somewhat by a very unusual haze [will try to find out about it tomorrow].

The shot posted is looking south down the Roaring Meg. We got back in the dark with very wet feet as both Roger and myself broke through a freezing snow crust into pools of water - something I've not done for a few years, but we were not over a creek [v. dangerous], but instead encountered it on the edge of a track where we simply underestimated the depth of a ditch made years ago. Lots of snow had drifted over it and in the spring, underneath the melt water has eroded away most of it leaving a thin lid!

Shirley left a comment on my last post asking what sort of camera I use. You can see it here:

It's been very challenging mastering it's scope - what it does well it does exceedingly well, while it's short comings are the other extreme. But most of all it's mobility is what I cherish, and since it's 10 x optical zoom does not show as a lens poking out, my potential subjects keep behaving in a relaxed way, as I don't look very serious in the distance.

ain't technology wonderful? Many people freeze up when a camera is pointed at them.
