If you were to take a look at this image out of context…
you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was, perhaps, an early morning or late evening shot taken in mid Summer – or at least during the warmer months.
In fact, not only was this taken on January 2nd (and it was blisteringly cold walking along the sea wall), but it was captured with a tiny Canon Ixus S500 camera. About the size of a [kitchen] box of matches and sporting a shutter release and a “zoom in/zoom out” toggle switch, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is good for nothing more than basic snaps.
Yet, aside from the sensor/lens flare [which accidentally looks reasonably OK in this short] it does remarkably well!
