Just a quick one from our walk up the hill behind Howwood on Thursday evening. The light was very low as the sun had gone down, but it did have a lovely quality about it. It seemed to make the grass unnaturally green. The LX3 was in my pocket and I tried a snap of Catherine against the fading sunset without any flash. The LX3 chose ISO 250 on auto-ISO and gave about 1/100th of a second on the maximun f2.7 aperture that I was able to select at that focal length. (The LX3 was zoomed almost right in – probably 55 mm equivalent). I like this portrait; it has just enough light, but nothing to spare.
