Hello, My name is Cosetta and I live in Southern New Mexico, considered high desert. I live on a ranch raising horses and cattle. I've been interested in photography since high school, (long long time ago), and have really upped my game in the last two years. I shoot now with a Canon 80D, 50mm f1.8, 70-200 f2.8 and two kit lenses, but I started with a Canon t3i. I am most comfortable doing landscapes and wildlife, but most recently been asked to to senior, family and portraits. A fellow forum member invited me here from a Facebook page. On the 16th I have been invited to photo horses at White Sands National Monument and excited to practice, not a paid job. He was enjoying the barn. Found this Sharp Shinned Hawk in my chicken coop trying to have a chicken dinner Lightning fascinates me. Old family wagon.
