Generally, as a long time fan of Ansel Adams, I tend to steer clear of landscape photography, as I often find that the detail I would like to maintain in a given shot just isn’t possible with the equipment I own. As compact digital cameras go I do think the Canon G5 is great, but it simply doesn’t have the resolution for the type of landscape work I would like to do.

All that said though, I do think this shot works – it was shot into the sun and the gentle diffusion masks any flaws in the cameras ability to resolve this sort of subject matter. It isn’t as sharp as I would like, but it does capture something of the gentle evening light at this time of year.
