Had to stop to shoot the very brief color (that I turned into black and white:-) in the sky this morning before meeting Jen for our hike.
To see more early morning Lake Morena shots I shot click here.
April 27, 2013 Early morning fog over Lake Morena at Lake Morena Campgrand, 20 miles north of the Mexican/CA border.
I asked Yogi to back up the car so I could shoot this little guy posing so patiently on a road side rock as we drove in Joshua Tree.
This link describes the Lyrid Meteor Shower.
Zoomed in view of one of the Lyrid Meteors 4am this morning.

From two to six today Jen and I finally got back to practicing Unit 4 in our 6 Unit NYIP Course. There are 5 or 6 Lessons in this Unit and for this assignment we were practicing north facing window light coupled with a reflector on the shady side. We added the Westcott Apollo Orb softbox (above camera) and liked the lighting best.
5d Mark III
85mm L 1.2 lens USM
North facing window light on Jen’s right side. Second light source – a reflector just off Jen’s left elbow. Forty three” Apollo Orb above camera. (Wescott’s octagonal softbox…it doesn’t require an adapter ring!.)
Cropped this shot to 16 x 9. Same setup as first.
Before the golfers came by on the back nine (right outside my door) I walked across the Palmer Course 15th fairway for some 8am reflection shots.
A very different feel on our hike this morning.
And here comes the sun.
Erika, Jen and I spent late afternoon and evening at the Salton Sea last week. What a joy. And what a great opportunity it was for me as Erika knows so much more than I about flash. This was a first shooting with a skilled photographer. I loved it. I keep saying I need to join a camera club and not be so solo learning photography. Anyone local reading this, let me know if you want to go shooting sometime, ok?
Erika taught Jen and me a lot.
Erika took this photo of me.
Erika knew this background would be great.
The shoreline is covered with dead Talapia.
Before we headed out to light write an old Gas Station (I posted this picture a few days ago.), I took a couple of shots out over the Salton Sea.
