Necessary diversion—Yours truly photographs a flower once in a long while. What can say? I’m don’t always carry my macro lens. 17-35 mm f2.8 lens.
Our last trip with it was to Crater Lake in Oregon.
This Easter vacation, we didn’t get that adventurous since we had a week off.

We settled on an easy 3 1/2 hour drive to the Santa Barbara County Lake Cachuma Recreation area as our site.
The lake is about 20 miles from the beautiful city of Santa Barbara and even closer to Solvang.
Before you get the idea I chose this site because of Solvang, I’m only the driver.
Anyway, to cool my heels, I had my camera and was able to keep myself occupied as my family explored this quaint little town.
When I have my cameras with me, I can usually keep myself occupied.
In fact, it’s kind of nice to tell the family, â€œCall me on the cellphone when you’re done,â€ so that I can be left to my own devices.
There is no shortage of folks with digital SLRs these days.
I spotted this gentleman stalking a flowerbed with his telltale white Canon L-series 70-200 Image stabilized lens.
Then there was this very personable lady who had the cutest black Chihuahua.
The poor little creature was shivering despite having a jacket.
Though I have internet access, I have to remember I’m on vacation.
Be back with more in day or two.
In the meantime, I hope you are all having a good time reading this wherever you may be.
