Mini vacation in Palm Springs and Anza-Borrego Desert with Pentax K-5, K-7, K-x and K-r.


Pentaxian friends.

My brother and his wife visited us this past week. We took advantage of their visit and spent four days in Palm Springs and visited the Wind Farm.. While there we also drove to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We had a good time, although I broke my K-5 by dropping it on the ground, with the telephoto lens hitting first and tearing the k-mount completely off the camera.

I will write more about the vacation, the K-5 and pictures we took, but I thought I would just post some pictures tonight.

The sun peeping through the clouds and dark skybehind  gave us some unique opportunities.

How lucky can we get, a rainbow to top it off.

The cactus were in bloom.

And so were most of the wild flowers, however, we had to get off the paved roads.

Look at what we found; The famous  "Great Road Runner", roaming around for food!

I'm not a "Birder", but this one was pretty. Anyone knows what it's called?

What a nice Church, in the middle of the desert.

We were being watched. These are wild dogs that people just leave behind. We couldn't approach them.

P.S. The AlettA DSLR Stabilizer will be available sometime early April. I have my first big order scheduled for delivery to me next week.  I won't advertize it again before I get them in my hands.

Coming soon...

Best Regards,
