A Cold Day in .... until the Fujifilm GFX 50s Works Properly?

See my Fujifilm GFX wish list.

What an ordeal with the Fujifiilm GFX 50s.

It’s a cold day in tax hell (California), what with an arctic front dropping about as much hail as I’ve ever seen at my home, while green and growing and flowering things take a beating. The storm dumped last night too, which should add to the 518 inches of snow this season at Mammoth.

With the GFX only semi-operable, I used my iPhone 7 Plus. It takes a lot better image than the GFX—it works!

I went for a bike ride in late afternoon... hail and rain and sun—beautiful. But boy does that hail sting when it hits the nose or cheeks.

Two days prior, this halo through very high thin clouds presaged the cold front.
