    I took this photo from the car window while traveling at 100km an hour, hubby was driving :)

    I sent it into the local tv station and they used it for the weather photo tonight :)

    I love my G1X!

    It's the sunrise in Moonta SA where i live :)

    Nice one.
    I was looking at your photostream and the shot 2012 8:05 caught my eye. Was that also with the G1X?

    Great work, Kerri. Keep sending them images - better yet, send them video - and I'll bet they'll eventually contact you with "assignments" or at least requests. I was a TV producer for a long time and the general public can often be a great help because no station or network can be everywhere all the time. Especially in this age of shrinking budgets. Congratulations on getting your work on the screen.

    No I did some PP stuff in iPhoto to give it a crop and a bit extra colour :)
