Floral Macro, Day 1

I rented a macro lens for the week to see what more a dedicated macro lens would make available to me.  We got off to a slow start the first night, but each day I’ve found myself more and more enamored with the lens and the format. (As of this writing, I have about 300 prints to work on, after initial review, and still 4 more days with the lens!)

Here is a small gallery of my first night’s photos, while I work on post-processing the rest!

Painting the Sky

I would freely posit that New Mexico has one of the best skies in the country- day in, day out, the bluest sky with the puffiest clouds, the best sunsets, the most captivating thunderstorms.

But once a year, we get a little crazy and paint it.
