Pitaya

Pitaya

The evening was late. The last of the sunlight fading away. A spot of light caught the tip of the cactus, Pitaya’s emerging flower.

The Pitaya is a very large crawling type of cactus. The flower very large. The fruit makes an excellent drink.

One day I had the opportunity to photograph this little baby waiting for a parent to feed it in my garden. I was able to set up the camera and tripod within five feet of my little subject. The hummingbirds are use to me being around them. I used my 200 mm lens.

The lighting was good. I was able to achieve a high shutter speed for good stop action. It was a delightful six hours of observing and capturing the hummingbird doing its thing

 

Two Lonely People

Two Lonely People

There was a time

Not that long ago

We shared our love

Just two lonely people

Searching for that love

That we could never have

The passion was there

The fires were burning

But in time, in time

The fires became embers

Our passion soon cooled

Two lonely people

It was a cold wet day

We kissed one last time

We parted ways

Just two lonely people

To search forever

For that one love

That can never be found

Just two lonely people

There was a time

Not that long ago

We shared our love

Just two lonely people

Searching for that love

That we could never have

The passion was there

The fires were burning

Just two lonely people

Just two lonely people

Looking for that one love

Searching forever…

Papayas Flower

NorthJinotagab_1104

I was travelling North of Jinotega up in the mountains last week. We stopped at a coffee Finca. I was strolling along a path with camera gear. I spotted a small papayas growing by a house.

All the elements were here for a great composition. The flowers, immature fruit. Beautiful lighting.  The result was the above composition

So until next time, happy trails
