Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, south of Kent, Connecticut.
I took a quick hike up to Thayer Brook this afternoon and took along the Canon G7X to try out. Nice day for hiking although a bit too bright for my taste in shooting.
I’ve shot these enormous tulip trees before and it’s sort of a test for any camera I’ve got. The tilt out LCD on the G7X makes this kind of shot a breeze. The trees ended up a bit under exposed but I got them sorted in Lightroom. All in all, the camera did a nice job here.
Waterfall on Thayer Brook
Falling water in bright light is a challenge. I’m not into attempting to “sheet” the water with a neutral density filter although I do like a bit of blur to show motion. Aside from the blown highlights (maybe my problem with metering) I’m happy with this shot and there’s plenty of saturation in the leaves and rocks. Canon colors pop and I’ve not seen this in a while. Not sure what I think but it does seem like I can work with this camera and fine tune things.
Mini waterfall on Thayer Brook
This shot seems unspectacular until you look closer at the moss hanging off the rocks. The G7X’s sensor picks up a lot of detail and one I figure out how to use it more effectively I think I can improve on these kinds of shots.
