I'm with UP on this issue... aim and shoot...
I *purposely* bought the dumbest, most primitive SLR (EOS 350D, pimped with a Sigma18~200mm) which dial offers [portrait], [landscape], [macro] and [sports]...
The compact (IXUS 60) even offers only 3 modes...

... transmitted from a CAT S60 thing ...

I'm quite enjoying the vicarious ride-along, Phil. Thanks! However, I'm finding that I have to read it in short sections as it seems that I have to break away frequently as I strangely become voraciously famished and need to eat something! :eating:

Luc - I hope one day to be back over to your side of the pond and we can break bread together! I still appreciate the time you put us up at your place.

Cammy - More 'long' than 'hot'! ;-) I was burning up when I headed up Pikes Peak, but by the time I got up to the top at 14,000+ feet I was freezing. :D
It was the same thing going up and over Sonora Pass (9,600+ feet) and Monarch Pass(11,000+ feet). Sort of like the Alps - burn up in the valleys, freeze on the passes!
