So much sunlight! Ideally it would have been nice to get some early morning and late evening shots. However I found myself mostly having to deal with high noon and a bit after that. Such interesting shapes and details in this prickly, dry but beautiful world.


Desert Landscapes


A recent trip to Arizona provided an opportunity to experience a completely different landscape. I enjoyed the texture of this place; dry, scratchy and rough. Of course the sun and significantly warmer temperatures were a nice break from New England. There are always challenges when photographing in bright sunlight, but here it was interesting to notice the different hues captured depending on which direction I was facing. Also conditions changed quickly depending on cloud coverage, and distance or location. In the next post I’ll add my desert flora & fauna photos.
