The Test of Time

I remember being so very excited bringing home the Canon S5. To me, it was the cutting edge at the time and I couldn't stay home. I traveled every back road I could, shooting thousands of photos. This point and shoot stayed with me for over 3 years, along several trails in life. This was a photo I shot of the Historic Church on the O'Keefe Ranch near Vernon, British Columbia in the North Okanagan valley.

Nice image. I love the post-processed sepia look. You can find some interesting subjects on those back roads.

Nice shot. I had the S3 and felt similarly about it. I thought it was the holy grail of P&S size with SLR quality. I bought some add-on lenses too.
Then I educated myself and saw what was being done with dSLRs and the love affair with the S3 grew cold...

Thank you for sharing the moment with me and my old S5!

I just happened across a shot from September that would fit the bill.
This was taken with a Samsung Galaxy S6 at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP at a popular overlook.
1/147s, f/1.9, ISO 40
This one holds my interest and my breath! Geesh!

Beautiful and colourful images, John.

Great ancient wooden church, dustyroads.

I'll have to go a bit beyond my own town to come up with something worthwhile
