While I was in Letchworth SP last Friday (doing my best to screw up a few attempts to make a decent panorama), I was also playing with the Olympus EM5. I continue to be very impressed by this thing. With the 45 mm f/1.8 lens attached, the focus is nearly instantaneous. Even in low light. This is a very fast, very sharp lens. The EM5 also does an excellent job with respect to image stabilization. Relatively slow shutter speeds are not a problem. And the damn thing is so light. Well built, but light.
This image was taken down in the gorge. The river is still flowing, of course, but there are areas of stream-bed that I’ve never seen before. At least I’ve never seen them uncovered. It makes it very easy, though, to see the effects of erosion on these layers of rock. It ain’t exactly Utah or anything, but it is pretty interesting. As with the canyons of the southwest, this is a view of geologic history.
Anyway, it’s a whole lot better than watching the Republican National Convention. Those folks don’t even believe in “history”, geologic or otherwise.
