That's actually kind of fun, hard to tell if it's sand or snow..

I sometimes get that effect without trying, usually when I'm in an awkward position, holding my breath, and my thumb squishes the WB button.

Hi Zig,

What's with the halos around the foreground objects on the beach? Is that owing to the pop art mode as well?

Regards,
Mark

Good eye Mark. That is a phenomenon I can't explain as it doesn't appear on the original. But yet, when I look at the image after it was downloaded into Smugmug, the halo is there around the Talapas. I hadn't noticed the difference 'til you pointed it out. I'll have to try and reload the image and see if the halo appears again.

Well, if you're near the water, you're bound to see some nice sunsets. Here's one from last night. As you can see I wasn't alone............
