...I missed the Panasonic G6...sold it about 6~9 months ago...why, not sure ? ...but I missed the handling...so, now it's back !!! IMHO the handling of a camera is ALWAYS better if it is shaped as a traditional DSLR rather than the Rangefinder / Leica style, with or without a handgrip...the DSLR handling just fits the hand PERIOD ! ...but will not slide into a jacket pocket...life is ALWAYS a trade-off, isn't it ??? I also needed a SNOW car, this is a 2011 Mini-Cooper S...it's a long story but the Shelby kept me stranded at home too many times during snow...I still have the Shelby but it's winter driving days are over...so you ask, why, would you purchase a Mini-C for a snow car... ...it was an impulse purchase, very low mileage for a 2011, front wheel drive with traction control, rave reviews, and a price about $3~4k lower than the current market...SOLD ! ...it also pushes 30~40mpg around town, accelerates like a rocket (200hp), fits like a glove and goes vrooom - vrooom !

...it's a different weekend than the previous post...and as you would suspect everything had changed...all in the same day...rain, fog, snow, bright blue sunshine...something for everyone ! ...these pix will not make the front cover of NatGeo...but there quite viewable...Sony Nex-6 with either the Zeiss 16 ~ 70mm (24~105mm FOV) or the Tamron manual focus MIRROR/Reflex SuperTelephoto 500mm (750mm FOV) handheld...all pix sharpened a tad ! ...enjoy !
...the turning of the Aspen's are an experience which can vary with the 'catch of the day' ...sometimes there spot on and other times there NOT! ...bottom line, you have to do a lot of driving to find the perfect 'crop'... these were shot with the Nikon V2 and either the Ultra Wide 6.7 ~ 13mm (18~35mm FOV) or the 55 ~ 200mm AFS DX telephoto (150~540mm FOV) ...all pix were just sharpened a hair... ...enjoy !!!
