Nothing pix to kick off the thread

I humbly hope EVERYONE else will do better and thus uphold the thread's reputation!

I TOLD you that built in flash on the G6 would be useful! Frog outside back door, grab camera, flip flash, and "snap" - gotcha. And with the 16MPX sensor, I was able to take just the middle third out of the image and still have plenty of quality to send to my nephew who is a frog and snake specialist. With the f2.8 12-35 fitted, the camera on program selected f2.8 and the focus is just a little behind the head (maybe because I leaned into the shot after locking focus). I need to investigate those two things.

A bit more interesting -- at least to me. A storm from approaching Takubar. Rabaul and Vulcan volcano are totally blotted out. Ten minutes later, rain was bucketing down. Of course, it was still warm though! Note the bit of blue sky out to the right. The storm passed in about half an hour! While I was taking this pic with the G6, the leveling device appeared -- involuntarily from my point of view -- and while it was welcome, I must check out how that happened. Still a long way to go in learning the G6 but enjoying the ride!

Cheers, geoff
