Ship on a mountain by PeterJCoskun Ship on a mountain by PeterJCoskun
The superstition mountains are arguably one of the most photogenic places in all of the southwest. During the spring, wildflowers cover the hillsides adding an amazing array of color. When summer hits, the monsoon storms bring a heavy load of drama to the landscape. Here, the jagged western face of the mountain rises up abruptly as the infamous flatiron protrudes into the frame like a bow on a ship. There is never a bad time to visit this location, and if you are ever in the area, it is a must see. So many photo opportunities abound here. I shot this while scouting for good wildflower meadows last week and just wanted to get a nice view of the entire mountain. Expect to see these mountains in my images frequently over the next few months.

Looking S. East from the observation point, not far from my back yard. It's my view every day.
