I'm visiting family down in Tucson this weekend, and I decided to head down early to go hiking. I decided to take the Sutherland Trail, which I've hiked before, to some canyon i've wanted to explore. Once I finally got to the canyon, I headed about a mile back, without taking many photos. I did experiment with a neutral density filter I have, but haven't really used because it's for my old lens (First picture). The second picture is a little dissapointing, because I thought the white flowers would show up more than they do, but i'm still happy with it. The first time I hiked part of this trail, my cousin pointed out this seasonal, double waterfall. It was dry that time, but not this time. I was planning on waiting for the sunset to get this picture, and I had to climb up a mountain to get a good vantage point. I was sitting on a huge boulder that I just kept imagining falling down. I got to the spot about an hour before the sunset, which was kind of a drag but I was listening to the Fugees while watching the mountain turn colors. When I finally got to the bottom, it was just about dark, and like my last photoset, i'm still experimenting with astro photography. There was no moon, I was by myself, and my battery was dying, so I didn't put a lot of time into it. I took this photo (last one) and decided to leave afterwords, becaus I was so paranoid with every little noise :scared: . I think if I would have tried a little bit longer, the milky way would have shown better, but i'm still learning. I used a flashlight to light the saguaro for half of the 60 second exposure. I also put the saguaro at an angle so it looks like it's pointing to the stars.
