The Daily Snap – July 24

©Darwin Wiggett - Canon G11

Even though I only had the Canon G11 with no tripod I still managed to get a colourful long exposure of this scene along the Robson River in Mount Robson Provincial Park. I shot reflections of Mount Robson (the golden tones) glowing on the rock using a 1.6 second exposure to blend the colours of the scene. I used the built-in ND filter in the G11 to make the exposure longer and I jammed the camera between two rocks to hold it steady for the long exposure. I also used the 10 second self timer to prevent any movement when I pressed the shutter. I am pretty happy with the photo.

  1. Great picture , those point and shoot cameras from Canon are amazing. I have a G10 and its great.

    I have a few pictures in my flickr site of Elbow Falls with the G10, take a look for those non believers. Main difference i find is speed between the G10 and say 5D for example. As far as performance goes.

    Enjoy your vacation Darwin.


  2. Wow, this was with the G11?! That is insane. I just got this about a month ago and it gives me hope that I can stretch its capabilities.
    I love your composition and those soft colors. Lovely, peaceful image.

    Its fantastic.
    Your work with this small camera is amazing. If I can afford a second camera to my D700 this Canon would be the best. Thanks for the inspiration.
