Thank you. I will follow your suggestions. Since I live in a desert, it would help if I understood how best to shoot it. I tend to enjoy B&W since I played around with it in early 70's, with a Leica IIIc. I have played with burning my B&W images, however it always feels strange to me. Color frustrates me, I keep looking at what I have done and wonder if it looks like a bad calendar.
Looking at the great work displayed by the contributors on LL makes me envious of their skills, and realize how far I need to go.
