I had heard about the Carrizo Plains a few years ago and wanted to find it. It was a Saturday and the original location I wanted to shoot at didn’t pan out so I decide to go for it. I arrived mid morning and there were already several cars in the valley. I started looking for any place that had less people. The road sign said Caliente Ridge and I followed that to the top. Looking back at the valley below, I knew I made the right decision.
This week I pulled #34 from the Lightbox Photography Cards set. “Macro photography is a challenge all by itself with a wealth of subjects for you to choose from.” I took several photos that I thought fit the criteria of the challenge. The hardest part of this challenge? Getting close enough to the subject meant sitting or lying down in the dirt and rocks.
I haven’t been out shooting this past month but it gives me the opportunity to revisit some of my past adventures from earlier this year. I enjoy a good walk in the forest. The trees and flora paint a pretty picture in colors and textures.
Spent part of a day at Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park in Arizona last March.
