Southeast Arizona Trip

Last week I took a trip down to Southeast Arizona. I visited Sweetwater Wetlands, Boyce Thompson Arboretum, Madera Canyon and Lost Dutchman State Park. The next few posts will cover this trip.

Elegant Trogon - Madera Canyon
f5.6, 1/60 iso 1600, Exposure Compensation -1, Canon 40D 400mm

I photographed this Trogon early in the morning on a foggy overcast day. The poor lighting forced me to use an extremely high iso setting which resulted in a very grainy image. A noise filtering utility called Noiseware Professional was recently brought to my attention by Bill Schmoker ( Using this utility I was able to extract a decent photo.
