Icy Blue



Coated in ice and shrouded in fog, Sidling Hill Mountain as seen from in front of our home.

I captured this image with my Canon S2 IS using the full power of its zoom. The lens on the S2 is a 6mm-72mm. With the tiny image sensor it employs the S2 gives the same effect at 72mm as a full frame 35mm camera gives with a 420mm lens.

Although this high of magnification is seldom used in scenery shots; in this case it gave me great results.
