Today was an odd day in that it started with overcast skies, cold air, and snow flurries. It then ended up being sunny and bright. Taking my Canon G12 on a 11-mile hike in Patapsco Valley State Park, I took the opportunity to learn this camera a little better.
Passing many streams with small waterfalls, we finally lunched at Cascade Falls. This gave me a chance to play with the waterfall to see if I could blur the water. The G12 goes down to ISO 80, but the smallest Aperture setting I could reach was f/8.0, so I got close to getting the blur I desired, but not a slow enough shutter speed. Of course, I discovered the Neutral Density Filter feature once I got home which would given me a little slower shutter speed.
So I have hiked 21 miles in one week – not bad for coming back from a blown out knee. Hope your day was as great as mine was !
