Higher Elevations and The Beauty of Calico Basin

Continuing with more photos from Calico Basin, the colors are amazing when the sun strikes the multicolored rocks. The other photos nicely show the change in elevation on the west side of the valley that can make your ears feel like they need to be popped! Cloudy and 53F are on tap for Las Vegas today, a forecast that I am not happy with! The winter months are my least favorite here, I may as well have a cabin back home in Michigan and go snowmobiling!

More Desert Photos

Are you guys tired of my repetitive desert photos? I hope not, as usual, I took way too many photos out there the other day. I hope that you enjoy the beauty of the Mojave Desert as much as I do. Today would be a fabulous day for a hike at Calico Basin, but my damn lower back just won’t permit this, it’s painful to walk and it was painful having to stand for the time it took to make another fresh pot of guess what? You guessed it! I wish that I could share a bowl with you.

The First Test Set

What do you think of these new photos taken this morning just west of Las Vegas? Not too shabby at all in my view. I did notice that the focus ring and zoom rings were a little hard to decipher when I was focusing and zooming. They seem a bit too close together for my not-so-small hands. These photos are all over the place between fifty millimeters and sixteen millimeters. I was amazed at how many people were there, it’s not usually that busy during the weekdays…
