War Eagle Trail Hike

May 30, 2005

The War Eagle Trail is a two-mile trail in nearby Withrow Springs Park.  I wanted to take a few more shots with my new Canon S2 IS and was short on time, so I headed there.  It turned out to be a nice short trail with some lovely views.

The 16MB SD card that comes with the S2 only holds a few shots, and they are interspersed with shots from my old camera.  Hopefully you can spot the S2 shots.  (Otherwise, I've wasted my money...)  I will be able to take better pictures as I learn how to take advantage of the many, many features the S2 offers.  I will be able to experiment with the various shutter speed, ISO, exposure, and focus settings more easily when the 1GB SD card I have ordered arrives.

Still more of War Eagle River

(Note: I didn't get the exposure right on the last 3 S2 shots. I am still learning.)
