105mm Pack Howitzer L10A1

No, not with artillery; with my Nikkor 105mm micro lens (only Nikon calls it a micro – everyone else calls them a macro).

Anyway, I was suppose to be traveling south today, but the helicopter decided not to show up, so I took a few minutes this morning to wander around FOB Apache.  I had hoped to take some more flower pictures, like the ones from COP Mizan, but with my macro lens.

Unfortunately FOB Apache is barren!  I had no idea how sparse vegetation is around here until I went looking for it. I found a few, but it wasn’t easy.

    Dispatch this is Cin at Apache..need a lift to Lagman…rather fly than drive or walk…women in pink veils creep me out. Is there one in the area with an extra seat?

    Such an interesting juxtaposition of the delicate little flowers with the military gear – all beautifully captured. The yellow flowers (second picture) are particularly striking.
