Armageddon outa here!


Sorry to continue the PUNishment but I'm feeling euphoric because I went out today. I had to, because my new camera arrived and I couldn't wait to test it! The light was very flat and I had difficulty finding the right exposure, but I was quite pleased with this shot of two mallards taking flight as a gull came to drink from their water hole in the ice.

I think I am going to enjoy using the Lumix LX7 and am looking forward to putting it through its paces in full manual mode ... just like a real camera.
lol! This is great.

Very cool shot! I love the title and it does look like they are running in the air! :) Congrats on the new toy! Have some fun out there! :)

Super shot,love the duck running across the ice!! Took a similar shot of mallards at a waterhole on the icy canal a couple of days ago.Hope you're pleased with the new camera.

Title - Oh dear! (That's the ultimate compliment on a jok, btw)
Great timing on the mallards, I love how you've caught the nearest one mid pre take-off run.

Love your puns. This is a fav photo for me.

Cool shot! I just went the opposite way do you, and gave up my Panasonic Lumix LX5 for a mirrorless camera. (Decided I wanted the best of both worlds - portability and interchangeable lenses, because I missed that part from the 35mm film era!) What I gave up: being able to carry it in my pocket. Hope you get much enjoyment from your new camera!

Great capture, Arthur.

@ronah ... Thank you Rona. I thought seriously about a mirrorless camera for all those reasons, but my priority is pocketability as most of my shots are opportunist. not pre-planned. I also have a dslr and a good selection of lenses, but that usually stays at home unless I have a special use in mind. I am enjoying the new Lumix already, especially its manual option, which makes it feel like a real camera.!

I don't know how I missed this but it's a great shot Arthur. Glad you are enjoying your new camera
January 23rd, 2013  
Beautiful shot. Enjoy your new camera.
