A Quick Desert Hike

Wow, man, it was really hot while shooting these photos this morning! Imagine doing this when it’s 112 degrees instead of 92! This is the first time I’ve taken the new Sony A7C body and the 28-60mm lens in the field. What do you think, did the new system do a good job?

If I were using the Nikon Z50, I’d probably have the zoom lens on but this camera works very well with a smaller lens for my type of photography. I saw two wild donkeys in that area but in this case, that 28-60mm lens was incapable of capturing them at that distance and the zoom lens was at home. Oh well!

On a different note, it seems rather odd to me to be uploading (posting) only twice per day, I am very accustomed to publishing much more content per day, so I need to post more photos per post, right? 🤪

  1. Even if it was so hot, you created fantastic scenes, John! And you have seen the wild donkeys!!!

    • Thanks so much, Kaya! The donkeys were staring at me from around 100/200 feet away then ignored me. 😂

    • Thank you so much again, Tone! There are extinct volcanoes well south of here in California near Baker. I never tire of the Mojave Desert!

    • Thanks so much, Rudi, I’m sure that you would love it if you visited! I’ve been here ten years and still love it!

  2. The new camera captures the colour of the sandstone in a beautiful way (with your humble assistance of course.)

    • Hi Maria, thank you so much! You have been here so you know how beautiful it is in person. ❤️😊🇸🇪

    • Hi Kelly, thank you so much! It was a hot time under the desert sun and well worth it. Be well! ❤️

    • Thank you, Venus! The reason for cutting back is so that more people will have time to view the photos as opposed to five times per day. I still want to post more but have to back down a bit!
