I recently returned from our annual work boondoggle in Tucson. I took my Nikon D3200 for a second go at desert photos. Last year, I’d just gotten the camera and had no idea what I was doing. I felt more comfortable with the camera this trip.
The afternoon I arrived, the weather (and the light) was spectacular. I wandered around the hotel grounds, and it seemed all the creatures were awaiting my arrival so they could be photographed. Here are a few of my captures, taken in a span of 45 minutes. I was amazed at my luck. The rest of the trip’s images paled (literally) in comparison. Of course light is key, and this trip highlighted that concept quite dramatically.
