Default Power plant

A "King tide" occurred last week and the sea level rose several feet. The foreground is a bird preserve near the beach, which is normally only about one-third under water. Thought it made for an interesting view of the Huntington Beach power plant.

Nice shots Walter. I do remember that king tide last week but I didn't make it down to the water.
Now that you have had some time using the NEX how do you like it? Dislikes?
I'm considering getting into that system. The quality of the images look quite impressive and the size makes it look even more appealing. I'm trying to decide on which NEX would be the best one to go with, the 5,6 or 7. Great IQ on a body the size of a deck of cards. I think the big cameras will be staying home most of the time if I decide to go that route.

Thanks, Mike. Actually, I'm still getting used to the 5n. It is quite an adjustment from my 5D MkII. For me, the lack of a EVF is a drawback because that's how I like to shoot. You can buy one, but it is expensive. The 7, of course, has one. Using the LCD is difficult in bright light, but I purchased a folding hood on Ebay that works pretty well. Overall, I'm quite pleased with mine. I just need to use it more and, of course, read the manual.
