    Had a great hike today in the Spur Cross Ranch area North of Phoenix. Lots of saguaro cactus in bloom. Here's a few shots taken with a Panasonic G3 and 20mm f1.7 lens.

    ... but your sky is very very blue. Got that camera set on vivid? :biggrin:

    Not vivid, just a typical Arizona sky. There were actually some thin white clouds. We usually have nothing but clear blue. All images were captured raw with default camera settings and converted to JPGs with Silkypix defaults.

    Lovely shots! :2thumbs: I lived in Tucson for many years and these make me long to be back there again.

    And, yes, neuces snapper, AZ skies really are that riotous shade of blue this time of year (once you get out of the Phoenix area :biggrin: ).
