These were taken on 29 December 2003 with a Canon Powershot S50. They were taken during a period where I’d soured on photography and so perhaps wasn’t taking as much care as I might otherwise have. Unfortunately I didn’t know enough about the benefits of RAW in those days so these are JPGs – and to my mind somewhat oversharpened. It was also rather a dull day so many of the pictures I did take were blurred because of camera shake caused by too slow a shutter speed. These are the only shots that I found to be useable.
It was some of the most spectacular scenery I’ve seen though and I very much regret that I didn’t spend more time on the photographs. Such a missed opportunity. Will I ever get a chance to go back? We still have family in California so who knows?
