One of those scenes you accidentally stumble upon when you are looking for something completely different. Not too far from my home, I took a random dirt road that goes pretty deep into the Superstitions. I didn't go too far as I was alone and the road seemed to get pretty rough, but I took a quick spur up a little hill that I thought I might flip backwards on driving up. Totally didn't seem as steep looking at it. I eventually got to the top where there is a little spot one could camp. The views all around showcased the rolling foothills full of blooming Palo Verde trees and saguaro cacti. Both blooming simultaneously. Off on the horizon was picket post mountain which is near the town of Superior. It lit up nicely at sunset and the rich greens and yellows complimented the orange and blues. It was quite the colorful scene. Shot with a @canonusa 5dmkiv @sigmaphoto 24-105 art lens and @bwfilter CPL. #ourwild#prana#coalatree#greettheoutdoors
The Wild, Wild West... Ever been to one of those places where you can sit for hours, just take it all in and get lost in the scenery? This is Monument Valley, AZ. It is one of those locations. When I sit and look at these settings all I can think about is THIS is where the real Wild, Wild West was found. It takes you back hundreds of years to a time when there were no paved highways, no cars, no trains... These sacred Indian lands were the backdrop for dozens of western movies, and for good reason. You can look into the distance and imagine the covered wagons filled with early settlers rolling across the rocky prairies.
