View of Las Sal Mountains from Snow Flats Road in SE Utah

This shot was taken from Snow Flats Road off of the 261 north of the Moki Dugway, which is just out of Mexican Hat, Utah. I would bet that you've never been here.  Jill and I love Utah and we have to blame our uncle, John Sanders, of Durango, Colorado.  Uncle John knows Southern Utah and the 4 Corners in general, better than any white man alive.  You can see the Comb Ridge on the upper right.  We took the Comb Ridge road to Hwy 95 and then on to Natural Bridges NM(see the arch in earlier post).  There were many cave dwellings we explored on this 4 wheel drive route and the BLM campgrounds were great.

Hummingbird in Garden June 2010

This photo was actually taken hand-held with my original DSLR; Canon T1i.  However, it's all about the glass and this is another shot with the 100mmL Macro....

The Sierra from Cerro Alto near Morro Bay, California, February 27, 2011

Jill, Kathleen, and I went for a beautiful, cold (for California) hike up Cerro Alto the last Sunday in February.  It was one of those very rare days where the "valley fog" towards Fresno was tamped down by the temperature inversion.  I believe that's Chalk Mountain in my home town of Atascadero.  This is when I wished I had that 500mm telephoto L lens , but alas, this shot isn't bad thanks to Lightroom.
300mm f/7.1 1/640 ISO 100

Apricot Flowers

  I know, it's a flower, but it's lucky I got it before the weather hit last week.  This is why I like this macro lens.
