Summer light by PeterJCoskun Summer light by PeterJCoskun
If you see a bunch of photos from this location in the near future it's because I'm still trying to find that "shot". I went back to lost dutchman state park as clouds were forming to the east and went back to the same comp as "Superstition storm". I waited and waited for the clouds to come over the mountains and kept my eye on the skies behind me. Everything was looking good. About five minutes prior to sunset a bank of clouds had formed over the western horizon and blocked the sun from producing that extremely special light I was looking for. I was able to come away with some keepers I think. Nothing too original comp wise, but it was something to leave with. The mountains themselves lit up at the very last moment, but the skies weren't super colorful like I was hoping. The light on the mountain was perfect, but the clouds to the west shut the sky off for the most part. The shot I'm looking for will have to wait for another day...

Superstition mountains, Arizona

I may post another image before I leave for my trip so if I'm not active it's cause I'm traveling the pacific northwest. Enjoy!

I absolutely love the gold tones of the mountains and clouds with the calming blue sky behind it. And I love how the cacti seems to almost perfectly frame the mountains behind it. Great shot! :D

Arizona is a state that cannot be over photographed, no matter what. I loved going through all parts of the state and shot many pictures on my way through as an OTR driver.
