My wife and I made our first trip to Death Valley a in late March. What a wonderful park? Plenty of stuff to shoot, so the SX50 got a work out. Here are a few highlights....

Of course this was a super bloom year and we found several stands of beautiful wildflowers, like this scene at Daylight Pass

We did not have a lot of critter sightings, but there were a few, like this Rock Wren at Eureka Mine.

Curious, to the above fantastic photos:

What PP are you doing with these?

Thanks H Joe, I haven't done much PP, but mostly I take RAW photos not JPG, to be able to do more PP. I opened them in Canon's DPP, a bit cropping, bit sharpening and that was it.
The waterlily is 2 stops under exposed, the sun was already very bright (10 hr in the morning), the 'correct' exposure was far too bright. With this camera I often use Auto Exposure Bracketing, to have 3 photos with different exposure, and be able to choose the best one.

I've seen it said here a hundred times : it's not always the equipment but the person behind it. Which you prove.

Thanks to you both! I was lucky that both subjects were willing to pose for me. The Herons will usually hold still but the sparrows generally are always in motion.

Even though I mostly shoot a DSLR now, my first bridge, the S3IS, and my last, the SX40HS, served me very well!!!!

A camera didn't make a great picture anymore than a typewriter wrote a great novel.

I am absolutely loving that image! Splendid! Sublime! Superlative! So cool!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Hey, in FaceBook today I saw a great close-up shot of a hummingbird taken with the Sony RX 100 Mk III (it was stuck indoors). The photog is an old friend of mine (from 45 years ago), a top-notch photog, see if you can click and see the shot:
