A Tad on the Cold Side

It’s been pretty cold in Chicago this winter, but the ice fishermen are a hardy bunch.  Take a look at the flag and guess the wind chill.

My reason for this post isn’t entirely the weather, but the first shot I took with my new Canon G1x camera.  I bought this camera to take on trips when lugging my Canon T1i DSLR and lenses would be overkill and hard on my back.  If it is to fit into my pocket, then I better wear cargo pants or my vest.

The featured photo is a straight RAW import into Lightroom without any correction, taken from my living room through the window.

The other is a JPEG using one of many Scene Modes.  I think I might like this camera.
