These photos aren’t as pretty as the desert photos but the Pano looks pretty good! Our weather today calls for 104F and a chance of afternoon showers which I hope we get.
The smaller Sago Palm (actually a Cycad) in the backyard has slowly turned yellow so this afternoon I added some proper fertiliser to it in the correct amount. The yellow fronds will never recover, the new fronds which are sprouting are nice and green though. I hope they both don’t kick the bucket!
I need to get more fertiliser though. Getting the photo of the rattlesnake isn’t easy with the 50mm lens so I cropped the photo down as much as possible without trashing it. I hope. In the nine years I’ve been here, I’ve never once seen a rattlesnake or any other snakes outside of the city. Or any Desert Tortoises either.
It’s too damn hot to roam the desert in summer for many folks… Read why the fronds turn yellow.
Here are some random photos I snapped yesterday out of plain old boredom. Fun, eh? Of course, I used the new 50mm Nikkor, I’m enjoying how different this lens is from the good old telephoto lenses that I’m so used to using.
I took these photos last evening before the storm blew in that is featured in the previous post, the calm before the storm! Today we have one more 113F degree day today, then we’ll cool down to a more normal summer temperature of 108F tomorrow. You can feel a big difference, I promise!
