Knowing where to stand.

Monitoring The Catalina Wildfire   2 comments

Yesterday’s conditions cause a seven-day brush fire to start-up again, but with winds dying down, clouds moving in and lower temperatures has reduced the number of fires on the front ridge of the Catalina’s. This morning has already brought some rain to the area, without lightning.

Bird On A limb   4 comments

Bird on  Limb Art July 2015-8227 blogBird On A Limb — Computer Art by kenne

On an outing to photograph
wildflowers and butterflies
a little bird kept chirping,
as if to get my attention.

Staying on point,
I tried ignoring her —
the conditions for
photographing her

were not good,
but she was persistent.
So, ignoring problems with
lighting and distance

I answered her call
taking two shots.
Later, at home
I downloaded the image

and as expected,
it was not good.
But, something
about the little bird

kept getting my attention,
so I created away
to share her
in the blogosphere.

Smoke and Fire Above the Catalina Foothills   4 comments

Smoke and Fire Above the Catalina Foothills (August 5, 2015) — Images by kenne

This fire, located in the Finger Rock trail area, was started by lightning a couple of days ago and was burning itself out, but the heat, low humidity and winds brought it back up today. This fire is about 12 miles from where we are located in Tanuri Ridge.

the creek flows from

recent mountain rains

bringing a welcome nip

to the summer desert heat.

Three Days After The Blue Moon   Leave a comment

moon over Sabino Canyon (1 of 1) blogMoon over Sabino Canyon three days after the Blue Moon — Image by kenne

Because I have been spending time in the cooler temperatures of Mt. Lemmon, I haven’t been in Sabino Canyon for about a month. After a brief run this morning, I went to check the creek flow (no rain in the canyon, but plenty on the mountains) and photograph barrel cactus flowers — this is the time of year for the barrel cactus to be blooming. 

Since I posted a Blue Moon image three days ago, I thought I would capture what remains of it this morning over Sabino Canyon.

Painted Lady (1 of 1) Art blogPainted Lady Butterfly — Photo-Artistry by kenne

I love photographing flowers,
except when it’s windy.

Photographing butterflies
can be frustrating —

they keep moving whether
or not, the wind is blowing.

Once I have the photograph
I can say things painting

in colors and layers
I can’t say with words.
