I saw the cutest bug walking back to the office today.
Every once in a while I get a hankering to hike in the deserts of Southern Utah. This image comes from one such adventure in 2014. I was taking macro shots of this yellow desert flower when I had a couple of unexpected visitors. I guess they didn’t mind each other’s company, and I enjoyed the moments of (not so) close interaction. These two are not social distancing, but I’m glad I kept my distance.
Saw this at work yesterday.
First, let me apologize for my absence. Work seems to be getting in the way of my photography lately, and I need to get out more.
This past weekend I said enough is enough, and I’m going shooting! I grabbed my camera and decided to use my 50mm prime lens (which I haven’t used for some time), hopped on the shuttle and went up to the Temple of Sinawava. It was close to sunset, so light was fading fast and I needed to hurry. East Mesa
I went to look into the Virgin River to capture a rapid or two.
Right after sunset, I captured the dramatic sense of how deep Zion Canyon really is.
Heading back to the shuttle, I happen to see a bumble bee buzzing around, so I tried my hand at freestyle macro. By the way, I’ve never seen a bumble bee look like this, anyone else?
After arriving back at the Lodge, I took this of the Mountain of the Sun.
