Autumn in the Desert

The little CCD sensor and lens in the iPhone 4S has opened up photography to the masses in a portable device and it continues to scare a lot of traditional photographers but I would encourage artisans to embrace the latest and greatest technologies. It’s what Ansel Adams would do. Check out the detail in this leaf shot, taken hand-held and post-processed with Snapseed by Nik Software. The image was resized for this blog with a special Adobe Photoshop plugin that I love very much! It’s a secret but if you message me, I’ll probably reveal it!

Mountaintop Field of Wild Yellow Daisies

It was super windy on the mountain as I tried to capture these daisies getting whipped by the wind. It’s amazing I even captured any details in the flowers. It’s monsoon season, finally! There’s small traces of purple wildflowers mixed in with all the yellow. It’s warm up in the mountains right now if you wish to escape the Southern Utah heat. Up high in the aspen and pine it’s like a dream listening to the wind whistling through pine branches & slicing though needles like knives. It’s midsummer and I am sad because summer is so wonderful and it shouldn’t end. :( Life flies by too quick!
