It is Springtime. In the past, that meant a trip to the desert and sleeping under the stars. This year I canceled the trip. I have an Achilles tendon issue that is not responding well to treatment, so walking has been difficult. Besides photography, hiking is an integral part of the trip. I can still ride a bike. There is some discomfort, but ice afterward takes care of it. These images are from a bike ride last Saturday. I took along the Pentax 645N with the 75 1:2.8 Lens attached. I ride through the area, and if something catches my interest, I stop and create an image.
