Nature’s tree lighting ceremony

I love these early evenings when the sun is low in the sky and illuminates the foliage just so. I drove past at least half a dozen photo ops on the way home tonight before capturing this one from my deck. Did I mention I love having the Hudson in my backyard?

Elsie chose a shutter speed of 1/100 and f5.5 for this. That was in Auto. I shot the same scene a few minutes later using her Landscape mode, and while she chose the exact same settings, this was the result.treelights2

It wasn’t that much later, but this one doesn’t pop like the first one. What do you think?

On a related note, lately Elsie seems to be going through batteries like Sherman through Georgia. I’m going to start taking them out between uses and see if that helps. I know it does with some devices that use conventional batteries. Otherwise I’ll wind up putting myself in the poorhouse and the Energizer Bunny’s kids through college.

Happy spring! Warm weather is returning soon.
