A favorite place to photograph in Arizona is the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, especially in the spring, which seems a long time ago now. The bees were busy all over the gardens that include every type of cactus you can imagine, as well as many other plants well-suited to this desert environment. This cactus bee was so involved in pollinating this prickly pear cactus that he let me get up close and personal and even posed.
I took this image while taking an evening walk. I’ve always been grateful to live in the country and be able to witness views like this as the sun sets. Hopefully this image brings you feelings of peace and joy!
I recently went to the East side of the Sierra’s in search of Aspens turning to their fall colors. The air, because of forest fires, went from good to bad depending on where and how high you were up. Essentially the colors were beautiful if you were fairly close and muted at a distance. This is looking west at North Lake on Bishop Creek. It gives you a pretty good idea of what the air quality was.
Ich war kürzlich auf der Ostseite der Sierra auf der Suche nach Espen, die sich ihren Herbstfarben zuwandten. Die Luft ging aufgrund von Waldbränden von gut nach schlecht, je nachdem, wo und wie hoch Sie waren. Im Wesentlichen waren die Farben schön, wenn Sie ziemlich nah und in einiger Entfernung gedämpft waren. Dies ist ein Blick nach Westen auf den North Lake am Bishop Creek. Es gibt Ihnen eine ziemlich gute Vorstellung davon, wie die Luftqualität war.
We just had this Peace Lily blooming. So, I tried something new. I placed it in front of an old computer screen, which was turned off and unreflective black. Then, I used natural light as well as colored light to take pictures. Enjoy!
Unsere Friedenslilie hat gerade geblüht. Mal was neues probierend, habe ich die Lilie vor einem alten Computer Monitor platziert, der nicht reflektierend and schwarz war. Dann, mit natürlichem aber auch farbigem Licht habe ich die Lilie photographiert.
Photography has the power to reflect the situation we are living in. Currently COVID 19 is determining our lives in many ways. One key factor is isolation in order to prevent spreading the virus. Let’s not forget that isolation can lead to loneliness and depression.
Stay healthy and reach out to a person In isolation. That is the message of this image!
