Snap it!

A friend of mine writes a weekly column for the San Antonio Express-News.

This week he posted a good, brief article about how digital photography has revolutionized the ability of the general public to take professional quality photos. Not that a digital camera will make you an instant Ansel Adams, but that digital tools bring this type of quality within your reach without the monumental effort it took in the analog age to produce the ethereal beauty of Ansel Adams' pictures.

His point was illustrated beautifully by a photo taken by Andrea Ottesen, at the University of Maryland, with a simple Canon ELPH 7 Mpixel camera, which made it onto the most recent cover of AAAS's Science magazine:
