Lighter Shades Of Pale

The photo above was taken with my Olympus C-5050Z 5 Megapixel Digital Camera. It is looking West from the Mount Lowe Motorway approximately half way between the Mount Lowe Campground (site of the old Mount Lowe Tavern) and Eaton Saddle near Mount Wilson. I found it interesting that haze from the Los Angeles Basin could render such beautiful shades. My Father-In-Law, Ron Hanke, called the photo "moody".

After retiring the Olympus C-5050Z to become the Altadena WeatherCam, I started using a Canon Digital Rebel. The Digital Rebel is a Digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex) Camera with 6.3 megapixels. It uses all the Accessories and EF Lenses that the Canon Rebel 35mm cameras use.

In March 2008 I was lucky enough to purchase a new Canon 5D. A Full Frame 12.8 megapixel Digital SLR with the EF 24-105mm L Series zoom lens with Image Stabilization. The CMOS Sensor is the same size as a 35mm negative. It's a beautiful camera and I'm playing around with it getting used to the controls.
