Photographer's Note

Nod to Craig for the title here, hope he doesn’t mind that I stole the idea. :)

For the second time in a row, my plans to post a different photo were changed. This time it was Ike (ikeharel) who was the influence behind today’s picture, so this one goes out to him! I ask myself the same question also…“I wonder how many other TE members this happens to and how often?”

He had asked about the light in my previous shot, which was in fact late afternoon, as well as inquired about the possibility of a closer view of the mountains that were composed in the background…hoping to get a better sense of their size. Although this picture is not from the exact same area within the ranch property, it’s literally not more than 5 minutes away from that location and is part of the same mountain range.

Seen here is Saguaro Lake itself. I chose this picture because of the two small boats and buoys which should hopefully give a good sense of the scope and scale of these mountains. They may not be as big or majestic of say, the Alps…but mountains none the less.

This is a very popular spot during the heat of the summer months, the lake is full of boats and water activities. As you can tell though, at this point of the year, you pretty much have the place to yourself.

On a side note, in case you were thinking the shutter speed and aperture were a bit backwards, it was because I was using a long focal length without a tripod (I was lazy and left it in the car. Fail.), and was trying to obtain a fast enough speed to eliminate as much camera shake as possible.

Thanks for stopping by.
