Happiness is sometimes a few solitary moments, mid-morning, basking in the sun. This small baboon (Papio cynocephalus ursinus), seated atop a white ant mount up against a sturdy tree, seems to have enjoyed the moments before being disturbed. The baboon is normally a gregarious little beast.

A-Z of Photography
White Balance is achieved through a process in which a digital camera analyses the scene to determine unrealistic colour casts in the frame, using pure whites in the scene as a reference. This process ensures pure whites and other colours are recorded correctly by calibration of colour balances in an attempt to record colour accurately. The photographer can set the white balance to suit the colour temperature falling on the subject. Most cameras have auto white balances, but they are not fool proof, sometimes leaving a colour cast.
“What do I truly hate about DSLRs? Menus! Particularly menus that I need to consult for ISO settings and/or white balance. Buttons marked ISO and WB with direct access do me fine.”
– – Herbert Keppler – 2007
