Yesterday I hiked up Mount Audubon, altitude 13,232. On the summit, I broke out my camera's manual to figure out how to adjust the auto-exposure in manual modes. (Auto-exposure was over-exposing the highlights, which meant clipping -- a bad idea.) I discovered that my camera was in fact calling out the highlights on the LCD on the back, which is pretty cool.

I shot a panaroma at the summit; here's my crude first stab, looking from roughly north-east at the right to west at the left.

A standard question in the Commune, "Study well?", has absolutely
nothing to do with how well one learned the designated material,
but rather to the individual's interactions with the one with whom
he is studying.
