Telephoto.....ing


A while back on one of my photo drives around town, I pointed my telephoto lens up toward the top of Camelback Mountain.  I liked the way the late afternoon sun was making the mountain look red and with the telephoto, I could see the saguaro cactus up there.


Then I pointed right up to the very top and I caught a glimpse of somethings up there that didn't look like rock or plants.  See that speck of white just left of center?  Then there is something nearly in the center.


So I cropped the photo and pulled in what I was seeing.  It looks like two guys with white caps on on the left side.  Possibly a woman in a red or orange shirt sitting and over to the very right, I spotted two shirtless guys soaking up some rays on the rocks.  Can you see them?  The two guys to the right were a bonus.  I couldn't see them at all in the original shot.  I have to remember to do this more often.  It's fun finding these things that you can't normally see.

That is a surprise! If you didn't point them out, I wouldn't have noticed the two sunbathers!
The light on the rocks is wonderful! Great telephoto shots!

Seems rough and hot.

Perhaps the shirtless guys should take a health tip from the guys wearing hats!

Oh my gosh 😃 That must be a real long lens you were using! Of course as soon as you mentioned shirtless men the shot got pulled right in 😃 Got them!! The colours are amazing, very outback Australia.

Have you ever climbed Camelback? I'd guess you have. I got half way up once, but had to quit, while Lois' grandmother just kept going. :)

I can't imagine climbing up that trail in the heat of summer.
I always enlarge my pictures to check the sharpness and sometimes find hidden treasures.
