These beautiful little echeveria blossoms  (approximate 1.5cc in size) are potted succulents on our patio.
The images were taken using a micro Nikkor 40mm lens on my ten year old Nikon D200.

The first time I saw images of The Wave was in National Geographic some years ago and concluded if I every had a chance to go I would not pass it up. That chance came in March of 2012. The Wave and Coyote Buttes are located in the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument in northern Arizona. The hiking conditions in Vermillion Cliffs are harsh and can be very difficult depending on the weather. The trails are poorly marked, so it’s very easy to get lost. Our guide was a hiking friend from Tucson who had hiked the area several times before, so getting lost was not an issue.

Girl Atop Windy Point Vista Pinnacle Rock   1 comment

Girl Atop Windy Point Vista Pinnacle Rock (August 20, 2010) — Image by kenne

out on a mountain highway

two months after moving to

the desert southwest, with

everything new to my eyes

I didn’t have to look hard

for photo opportunities —

pictures were for the taking.

a popular stop on catalina highway

is windy point vista,

6,000 feet over the Tucson basin —

the views are gorgeous.

adding to the view

on this day was

an attractive woman atop a

rock climbing pinnacle.

hot desert summers,

I was too new to the vista,

too old to climb with her.

I never got her name —

with a body like her’s

who needs a name.

Morning Walk — Cactus Blossom   1 comment

“Distance changes utterly when you take the world on foot. A mile becomes a long way, two miles literally considerable, ten miles whopping, fifty miles at the very limits of conception. The world, you realize, is enormous in a way that only you and a small community of fellow hikers know. Planetary scale is your little secret.”

— Bill Bryson

This is the third posting of this beautiful wildflower over the last two years — the presentation is a little different each time. Like a lot of wildflowers, this rich blue beauty last less than a day, opening in the early morning and often closing by noon.

Located in the hear of Utah’s canyon country, this picturesque national park stretches for 100 miles. However, our time in this beautiful park was brief as we traveled 20 miles of Utah 24 through the northern part of the park on our way to Moab. Most of the photos I took were in the Hickman Natural Bridge area, which I will be sharing in a future posting.


A Big Thanks to Terry Alberman In Kanab, Utah   1 comment

On the first night of our recent road trip we stayed in Page, Arizona, near the shores of Lake Powell. That evening I downloaded photos from my D800 to my laptop. After doing so, for the first time ever, I forgot to turn-off the camera. The next morning the battery was completely dead, which is when I realized that I had forgotten the battery charger. This was bad news since we were going to be spending the morning photographing on Lake Powell, the driving to Zion National Park.

If you have followed my blog, you know I have posted several photos taken on the Lake Powell cruse. Those photos were taken with my D200 and a 12X28 wide-angle lens. My plan was to use both cameras, D200 with a wide-angle lens and the D800 with a 28×300 lens. But, now I only had use of the one camera.

So, I started searching online for a camera shop. Most of us who take photos know that over the years our favorite independent camera shops have gone out o business, primarily due to the “big-box” stores. However, I was able to find a camera shop, Terry’s Camera Trading Co. in Kanab, Utah, which was on our way to Zion National Park. I called Terry and ask him if he had a charger for a Nikon D800. He said he might, but would not know till he could see the numbers on the battery. Since it was a Nikon, he felt pretty sure he would have a charger. 

Arriving in Kanab, we found the camera shop on the main street of Kanab, where Terry has been for 34 years. And yes, he had a charger — for me, Terry was a “lifesaver”.

Now one of my favorite places in the world is Terry’s Camera Trading Co. in Kanab, Utah — you should see his collection of old cameras.
