I made a last minute “escape” visit to Boyce Thompson Arboretum on an afternoon earlier this month, with no real goals in mind. Its the same visit where I got a marginal shot of one of the pair of Rufous-backed Robins wintering there.

Since I wasn’t looking for anything specific I packed along my old Nikon D70 and “kit” 18-70 zoom lens “just in case.” I’m glad I did, because it was a good tool to get this shot of a clever trail-side painting capitalizing on the Australian theme of part of the arboretum. This is a small slab of rock leaning against the trunk of a tree where the a trail towards Magma Ridge breaks off from the Main Trail just east of the white footbridge that crosses Silver King Wash. For such a wonderful painting it doesn’t jump out from the shaded base of the tree.

2/2/10, Nikon D70, 18-70 zoom @ 52mm, ISO 400, 1/50th second at f/8, natural light no flash, hand held.
