Castle Valley Overlook

Marilyn took this photo from the Castle Valley Overlook on June 8, 2014.



Here’s a photo that I took from that area on the same day. Comparing the two now, I think I should have used warmer colors when editing Marilyn’s photo. (I might re-edit it…)



La Sal Loop Road Views

I took these photos as we were leaving the La Sals on Wednesday, June 11.

Whispering Oaks Ranch Macro Shots

On Tuesday afternoon, we walked around Whispering Oaks Ranch where I used 180mm and 105mm macro lenses for the following shots.  Not all shots are “macro”, but I used a macro lens on all of them.

(There is one other cat on the property too, but we didn’t see it.  Bella is very friendly.)

I had a hard time getting autofocus to work quickly enough to photograph ants and other small critters.  I “lost” on my ant subjects when it made its way onto the gravel.  I put a rock in front of it and transferred it  back to the pavement at which time it commenced grappling with one of its friends.  I used manual focus for this shot.


UPS Trail – Kokopelli to Castle Valley Overlook

We hiked part of the UPS Trail on Tuesday.  (UPS stands for Upper Porcupine Singletrack.)
