Shooting and traveling in AZ and NV.
The Colorado River, tamed and made into a landing strip reservoir.
Dessert flowers er, I mean desert flowers. Maybe they are tasty in which case, dessert may apply.
I enjoy doing abstract photography as well and I will share one or two of the better ones, once in a while. This is a water reflection rotated 180 degrees to depict a mountain and clouds landscape. Pretty, huh? Could of been an oil painting. My other abstract offering is the rainbow on page 7.
Rib it, rib it, about 1 1/2" long from tail to nose. A juvenile Sonoran Dessert Toad, Incilius alvarius. Taken while touring "Ash Meadows" in a Wildlife Preserve.
This photo does not realistically portray the brilliant neon color of this minnow sized Pupfish. Taken in a desert wild life refuge Southeast of Death Valley, in NV. This area was being restored to wetlands and wilderness, having been saved from a short life of farming.
A "Belted King Fisher" Megaceryle alcyon
A mated pair of "Buffle Head" ducks, Bucephala albeola. They are suppose to be "Sea" ducks but are quite common on fresh water as well.
All of the above photos were taken with a Canon EOS 5D MKii camera body and a 100 to 400mm 1:4.5-5.6 L IS telephoto zoom lens.
