One of the reasons I chose the camera I did is its weight. It is super lightweight, which is critical for backpacking. As a result, I have lots of great pics from my backpacking adventures. This shot was taken of my friend's birthday candles in a backcountry shelter heated with a wood stove. No tents this trip as it was still pretty chilly and snowy up in the mountains. Karen's intense look is her formulating a plan of attack for blowing out all of these candles.
