I post this because the wilderness is not pristine. Such a concept is foreign to humans and is a false-construct because we are a natural part of the landscape. When used in reference to the new world, it almost makes it sound like nobody was here before Columbus. Yes, I do believe in protecting and defending beauty as long as we come at it from a different angle. In the end, I think we all want clean air and water but humans are natural part of this earth.

This shot was captured on the outskirts of Las Vegas in the Mojave Desert near sunset using a Sigma Foveon sensor. I was a real strong supporter of this technology but it doesn’t seem so practical these days, anymore…

Old steamrollers like this stretch clear back into Cedar City's recent past and this particular one was relocated to Frontier Heritage State Park in Cedar and somewhat restored with a paint job but I loved it most in its original rusted glory when it was in its natural environment. I guess this is why I like to document things before they are changed.

I forged an alliance with Sigma Camera Corporation. They sent me their latest and greatest Sigma DP2 Quattro with a proprietary Foveon sensor which is actually three sensors combined into one. I also purchased their predecessor to the Quattro; the Sigma DP3 Merrill which I also have grown to love. I’m going to write a few blog articles (coming soon!) about these two amazing little cameras from Sigma. About six months ago, I started a petition asking Sigma to create a Micro Four Thirds camera with a Foveon sensor but the DP3 Merrill seems to be satisfying my cravings for Foveon Technology. Without going into more detail, I am posting a few test images here to show you the color and quality of the Foveon technology…

I just returned from a three day trip to Las Vegas, Nevada and stayed in the El Cortez hotel on Fremont Street. I was testing the Sigma DP3 Merrill and the Sigma DP2 Quattro which Sigma has out on loan to me. I will be writing up a review pretty soon on my experience with the DP2 Quattro. It’s a nice camera. This cityscape was shot with the DP3!

Sigma DP2 Test Shot
I am totally amazed by the picture quality attributed to the DP2 and the camera is perfect for what I was expecting. It takes superb shots and doesn’t limit me. I’ve heard complaints about the LCD screen and the autofocus but I found neither to be a problem. This is the perfect little camera for me. :)
