2013—Day 301—Welcome to Arizona!

I’m in Prescott, AZ visiting my dear friend and fellow photography enthusiast, Melinda, her husband Lonnie, and their son, Matt. They welcomed me to Arizona today. I’m staying at Lonnie and Melinda’s new home in Prescott for the next week. We are going to spend the week catching up, playing with our cameras, visiting some of the spectacular places in the area like Sedona and Jerome, and even visiting with our old friends (and former college roommate) Susan and Chris who are visiting the Grand Canyon and environs from Neenah, Wisconsin. Melinda’s new home is lovely and she had a bouquet of welcoming sunflowers on the table. Late this afternoon, the light shining through the sunflower petals caught my attention. I took lots of shots but this composition was my favorite. I took it with my D7100 and the 70-200mm lens at a focal length of 200mm, on the tripod using its new lens collar, and Aperture Priority (f/7.1, 1/8, ISO 100).
