The roses are at peak right now. I spent a little while making macro images before it got too hot this morning.
My rig with my macro rail and two images in the garden using my cell phone.
More to come…

I’m back! I had a lovely 4 days in the Eastern Sierras with friends, Rainey, Rene, Nik, and Jonathan. We got lucky and went when the color was peaking in the spots we visited. I have quite a few images I like from the trip that I’m still rating and tagging, but here’s one image I made yesterday at Lee Vining Creek. It was so nice to see the creeks, and streams with water. All the creeks near my home are bone dry!
I made this image with my new camera: The Nikon Df. I’ve been saving for it since I rented one back in February.
I used it for 4 full days of shooting and it performed very well in daylight, and low light. I love how light it is compared to my D700.
Right now I only have two complaints:
1) Nikon did not provide a LCD screen protector with it, so I need to get one STAT!
2) The battery drained too quickly when shooting the last morning in 26º ambient temps. I’ll have to get a 3rd battery soon.
Other than those two complaints I’m happy with the camera. I hope we have many good years together.
As of now my D300s will either be passed down or possibly sold, and my D700 will be my back-up/second camera.
