Photos

Unlike last year, I remembered my camera. But the camera I brought was a bit different. These are with a Sony DSC-HX5V. It’s a point and shoot, but it has a panorama mode and a GPS. Seems perfect for canoe tripping, no?

What I discover post facto is that the GPS takes a while to orient itself. And if any photos are taken before it gets a fix on its current location, it uses its last known location. So you’ll not be able to navigate by these photos. In any case, here’s where they are on the map (Flickr)
