azkaisr Posted April 7, 2007 Share Posted April 7, 2007 Had yesterday off and just picked up a new camera The new Pentax K10D is really a nice camera. Having really wanted a SLR for a while, getting one allowed me to remount the Nikon 5600 back on the bike for Video shoots and on board stills. The new tripod works good, but needs to sit tighter to eliminate the shake that appears at speed. Took some pictures in the back yard. My Grapes are coming in great and I should have a banner crop this June. My roses are blooming too The fish in the tank have totally become pets. The almost beg for food whenever I come outside. Especially the big one! Wanting to test it out some more, I decided to take the RT to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Superior. We ride by the place at least twice a month on our rides, but never stop. Well today I paid the man my $7.50 and wandered on in. What a great place to visit! The buildings are all made of local stone The desert is far from just a few Saguaros and a bunch of Sand Dunes I love the macro feature of this camera A forest of Barrel Cacti The trail drops down into the Riparian area around Queen Creek. No Richard, I did not just make that word up. They have a really cool suspension bridge It was such a nice day. High in the upper 80's Everything is lush and green Some really cool colors These flowers dwarfed the parent plant Ok Junior Botanists...what plant is this? Man these were worthy and they had this really distinct aroma. I could get this sick if somebody doesn't stop me.....soon So I leave the park and decide to head back to Phoenix to get home in time to do some work around the house. I get about 4 miles out of Superior and everything comes to a halt. Sat there for about an hour. Two MedEvac Helicopters later they let us through. All I saw was a Harley on the back of a flatbed tow truck and a mangled Honda on another one. The Harley didn't look all that beat up. Traffic the other way was backed up for about 10 miles. This picture is from the shelf mounted Nikon. Stopped to look at a house in Apache Junction that a friend is interested in. The street ain't much But the view up hill sure is nice Mr Perez welcomed me back to the house himself. Of course he was more concerned with the bike then with me. Oh well. Great day out there as usual. Might have to go somewhere new tomorrow! Kaisr Link to comment
