Selfies in the Desert

Pin It

If you’ve ever been to the desert in the gorgeous light of the evening sunset, you know of its magic. If not, like me, this is a new experience and you’d pull your car over and set up the tripod , attempt to set focus and run to where you think the magic will happen in a 1/320 of a second to catch a few images of you and your daughter. Focusing on a random bush is not easy. Running to said bush to try to be in the image and somewhat in focus when there is no one or nothing to set focus on is even more difficult. Here are some I am proud of. To be in pictures with my daughter is priceless. To be a passerby, such an experience must have been hysterical. Happy early Mother’s Day!
Look for the outtake in the last image. Such a delicate little flower my little thing is 🙂
