Sandias in the Mist

Fujifilm X-E1, 27mm ƒ/2.8 pancake lens 


I took a detour on my way to work this morning to get a few shots of the Sandias in the mist from a vacant lot at the north end of San Mateo, west of I-25. I included three photos, and added info on the cameras and lenses because the color is quite different between the two cameras. The Fujifilm X-E1, which has an APS-C sensor, gives a cooler color with the white balance set on AWB. The Canon 1Ds Mark II, with a full-frame sensor, gives a warmer color set on AWB. Note: AWB is "average white balance", not "average white boys", in the case of the cameras estimating the temperature of the light.

Hi Julie. I like the Canon 1Ds cameras by far. The mirrorless cameras are compact and easy to carry, but they have too many limitations.
Hey Tim .. there sure is a difference. Which is your favourite camera :)

I always enjoyed watching the play of light on the Sandias, Tim. The mist is equally lovely. TGIF hugs.

Thanks, Lavinia! We are always amazed by the different moods the Sandias go through.
