At 4 AM on December 26th my husband and I started out from a frigid winter in Ontario, Canada for a three-month holiday in Mexico. Although we like to drive, the six-day sojourn to reach our destination seemed a bit daunting.
With little traffic on the highways we arrived at Tucson Arizona, one of our overnight stops, a day earlier than planned. In Tucson was the first chance I had to test out my new Canon 5D Mark III and Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 lens.
The F/2.8 is an amazing lens. Its large shutter opening lets in lots of light even at fast shutter speeds. Sometimes I like to close down the aperture to capture detail in foreground objects as well as those in the distance. You will notice this below in the images with foreground cactus and the cathedral in the background. The F/2.8 doesn’t disappoint.

Here are some photos taken with my new camera in Tucson.
