Some More Fall Colors

The colors are disappearing fast at Zion National Park.  Lack of rain here(rained once in last 2 months) has muted the colors.

Back In Business

My camera took another hit a few weeks ago due to an accident but now it is better.  You may remember a few years ago that this same camera accidentally fell into a creek high in the Sierras and took some time to heal after Canon said it was totaled. This time I spilled a soft drink on the camera which was sitting on my vehicle’s passenger seat but I quickly dried it off,  but some damage was done. It was a coke(No more cokes) and they contain a lot of syrup which got into some of the dials and switches on the camera.  After a few days, I couldn’t move a few. I gambled with some WD-40 and after a few weeks of drying out, the camera is in fine running order. For my next camera, I will purchase accidental damage insurance which is available.   So I took some photos out in my backyard of Zion National Park which turned out just fine!
