While the largest winter storm in 35 years was pounding the Pacific Northwest, I was comfortably nestled into the Southern Arizona desert living like a boss! Several of my adventures included hiking in Saguaro National Park, Catalina State Park and Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge. The weather was spectacular, hovering around the mid 70's during the day. Only got stopped by Border Patrol once because, let's face it, I can look rather suspect at times.
I was able to try out my new panoramic tripod head - the Nodal Ninja. Tell you what, I was bustin' the moves like a photographic warrior. The idea is to shoot several photos across a fabulous vista and then stitch them together to create a masterpiece of fine art.
