Parked For The Night One More Time

Parked for the night in a Service Plaza on the Ohio Turnpike. And it's snowing. This was a quick grab shot with my Canon G11, shot in Program Mode. I set my beanbag on the drivers window of my truck, set the self timer on the camera, set the camera on the beanbag, and shot. I gotta say I'm more and more impressed with the capabilities of this camera every time I use it. This was also a 'computer experiment'. I set up a 'Windows-less' computer running Linux Mint. I transferred the image from the camera, quickly resized it using GIMP, and uploaded it to Flickr running the Firefox Browser. No Windows or Microsoft anything was used. Kind of fun.
