Picture Story

I captured this image on New Year's day 2020, my first of the year. What I think is interesting is that I captured this with a DJI Osmo Pocket. For those who are not familiar with this device it has a tiny form factor with a 3-axis gimbal mount for the camera head. It is quite flexible in allowing ISO and shutter speed selection and allows capture of RAW files. It easily fits in a shirt or coat pocket (thus the name). I carry one with me every morning on may walks through this forest.

As you can see it does a very nice job of detail and color rendition. On this particular morning a low fog and dull gray light hung over the forest but the golden orange color of the autumn beech leaves were still vibrant and provided a nice contrast in framing the path through the trees.
