Tortolita Mountains near Tucson, Arizona.

Tortolita Mountains near Tucson, Arizona.

Last night’s sunset.  Since they sky didn’t do anything, I left it out.

This was at f/11, 1/30th of a second and ISO 2500 with a Canon 5D IV and 24-105 lens at 65.  Even though I was using a tripod, I needed the high ISO to help freeze the wildflowers from the movement thanks to some wind.

Since a couple of people opted for a private workshop, we now have one spot left on my desert workshop:  http://desert-photo-retreat.com/sonoran-desert-photography-workshop/

Woke up to some nice rain and this beautiful rainbow this morning!  The photo blind sits out of sight at the bottom of this rainbow – maybe there will be some gold to find there today!

Desert Photo Retreat.

Desert Photo Retreat.

I rarely capture landscape images in the middle of the day, but it is so beautiful right now it is hard not to!  This was just a few minutes ago.  Unfortunately the record high heat wave is beginning to really take its toll on the wildflowers.

The Desert Photo Retreat is now ready for business!  Since it is late in the season, we will have a bit of a limited schedule – but this is a bonus as we didn’t expect to be open this year.  Our photo blind and water feature are done and seeing lots of activity.  Plus, we have amazing landscape and night sky photo opportunities.  For those that are interested, you can even spend the night out here.  I could go on, but I would just be repeating what is on our website:  Desert Photo Retreat.
