Misty Photos at Deer Lake

My wife Yumi had a pottery class at the Shadbolt Centre at Deer Lake today, and when I dropped her off I took advantage of the foggy day to take some photos around the lake in the soft light. If that phrase sounds familiar to readers, that's because it's almost the same as in this post :-).

I find such conditions are a challenge to my aging 3.1MP Kodak digital camera and its nearly five-year-old technology. It prefers punchy, vivid colors. You have to tinker a lot with the exposure compensation to get decent shots, however highlights still tend to blow out.

Majestic trees shimmer in the soft light as winter nears.
