The Weekly Photo – December 5, 2011

When I am out doing ‘serious’ photography, I have my ‘serious’ camera gear. Usually for landscape photography that is my Canon 1ds Mark III with my four Tilt-Shift lenses and a telephoto zoom (Sigma 120-400mm). But even with my landscape photography pack, I still always have my point-n-shoot camera in a pocket just to get fast grab shots in changing light. For the November Fire and Ice Tour we stopped at the Bighorn Dam west of Nordegg to find fast moving fog rolling through the spruce trees. I made these two quick snaps with the Canon G11 because the light was changing super fast. By the time I could dig out the ‘big guns’ the moment was gone. If I didn’t have the point-n-shoot I probably would have missed the moment! Mostly this is a reminder to myself to always have the point-n-shoot with me.

  2. Nice! Good thing for your little P&S!🙂

  3. Bob Perry Says:

    You say you shoot with your G11 is this in manual mode or AV?

  4. Nice ones, Darwin. Here in the Northern California Foothills we are entering the season when morning fog creeps up the canyons and spills over the divides. I love it, and am often out chasing down photos with my “big gun”. But my G12 is always over my shoulder in my “Snapper” pack.

  5. Nice images and well worth grabbing while you could. I have missed many photographs by not having an alternate camera easily accessible.
