Canon Powershot G9


SeaWorld Orlando is one of the eight world class theme parks in Central Florida. Of all the parks, this is one of my favorites for a fun relaxing day in a beautifully landscaped area with all sorts of neat sea animal exhibits and shows. It also features a couple adrenaline rides like the coaster Kraken and the Journey to Atlantis water ride. The free beer samples at the Annhauser-Busch Hospitality House doesn't hurt either.

This shot was taken inside the "Penguin Encounter" at a very slow 1/13th of a second due to the low light conditions. This is one of my favorite places at SeaWorld, partly because watching the penguins and tourists is fun, but mostly because they keep the place ice cold for the penguins, making it the coolest place in the park on hot summer (and winter) days. It does stink a little bit, but not bad, and you do get used to it.

This was taken with a Canon Powershot G9. I am not that happy with it, hoping for greater detail despite the slow shutter speed. It is possible that floor vibrations might account for the slight blur, but it was probably just a crummy focusing job on my part.
