Here's a less-zoomed pic of the eagle. To give you an idea of the size of it, that's two-way roadway under the log arch. You can see extensive burn here before the Rockies, but that's actually just a very small portion of that particular fire.



That burn actually isllustates one of the problems I've had with the Panasonic. With in-camera saturation turned to the lowest the shot already had tons of blue and purple in it. But to the eye the actual scene looks more ashy burnt, and other hues are present too. I really had to pull a lot out of those burn areas to somewhat represent earth tones and charcoal, but I see I could go further yet.

Shadows too, are a little more saturated with that range often than with some other cameras. That becomes a problem if you are also trying to bring out other elements. Mostly a time problem, but still... ; }

Glacier Park again, looking across Lake McDonald. I have to find out what the name of these two peaks are. But I can say that the lake averages 1.5 miles wide and is 10 miles long, and very deep, almost 500 feet in the deepest area. It drop-s off very quickly along much of the shoreline, and was carved out by a glacier, as were the peaks.

They figure the ice had to be AT LEAST 2050 feet deep as it came through here around 20, 000 years ago to do this.

Getting close to sunset, I caught Lake McDonald in a smooth and clear state as more clouds began to form...

Yeah, I'm confused, I thought you sold your FZ greenboy. Is that what all these shots were taken with? And you didn't like them enough to keep the FZ? Sorry if my facts are all out-of-line as it has been a hella week.

How about moving on. Buy a new camera and quit bumping.
