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? 🤪
Beautiful Joshua trees!
The rocks are an ancient fault line
Southbound on Charleston Boulevard
Don’t touch those Joshua tree tines, deadly sharp!
Once again I am out of fresh material, so here are some random older photos for ya. It’s gray above me today which makes it the perfect day for full couch potato mode but I’d rather be on the bike somewhere in the city. Does a gray sky make you feel gray too?
My adopted state is a beautiful state! My home had a professional cleaning this morning which was long overdue. This place was dirtier than I thought it was for just one resident. Well worth the cost, especially with family coming to visit next month!
This tree is huge, I’ll bet that it’s several hundred years old! Sunny and 58 degrees are on tap for today and I sincerely hope that this 50-degree pattern will break very soon so that we can get some warmer weather.
Joshua Trees are beautiful and true survivors as they can live as long as 1000 years but live on average 500 years! Beautiful to see up close but do not touch those tines unless you want to check your blood glucose! Please follow this link to learn more about this amazing Yucca.
The Nikon is still acting wonky, these photos were taken just before it forced me to use the iPhone which at this point was actually easier than shooting in Manual mode with the Nikon! Partly sunny and 62 degrees today, possibly a bike ride day!
