July 26th…gray and gloomy. Ho hum. When…will…summer…arrive?? But, it has!! You just need to go up, up, up…above the clouds!!! A friend and I thought it would be a good day to take pics of the wildflowers at Hurricane Ridge. That’s one way to take advantage of cloudy weather, right? Of course, when we arrived we got bright, bright sun! My daughter joined us, taking photos herself with her disposable hello kitty camera, and here she is loving the views, flowers and sun! As for taking wildflowers photos? Not so bueno but, no matter. Just being up there was heavenly!! It was a great reminder to check the Hurricane Ridge webcam.
FYI – since I thought I was taking wildflower photos I brought my Olympus E-500 with macro lens. 2pm summertime with the sun bright and high in the sky obviously did not make for ideal shooting conditions but, good enough to get these candid photos.
Camera settings for these two photos were: F-stop: F/10, Exposure: 1/400, ISO-100
And, check out the video snippet below of the gorgeous vistas:
