16/365

IMG_3818I took my new macro lens out for another spin today at the Living Desert, a botanical garden and zoo in Palm Desert. As much as I’ve grown to love the mountains, I must admit that there are few things lovelier to my eye than a cactus illuminated by late-afternoon desert light.

    • Thank you, Lori, for the words of encouragement. The truth is, I’m not thrilled with most of the images I’ve taken with this new lens and realize that I’ve come up against a learning curve. (Not that that’s a bad thing!) Camera shake and lack of sharp focus are the main things troubling me at the moment. I ordered a cable-release device when I was down in the desert yesterday so hopefully that will help. As for John Shearer, I recognize some of his images (fantastic, all of them!) but am not familiar with him or his career. Please let me know when your article is published. I would love to read it!
