A few weeks ago I found myself back at a favorite spot of mine, the Lost Dutchman State Park. I don’t know what it is that draws me there but something always does.
We had just had a monsoon storm past the previous night so I figured there would be good cloud cover the next day. I loaded my 8 year old daughter up and we set out to snap some pics. Upon arriving I noticed the light was changing dramatically as the clouds were rolling. Timing was going to be everything. As I set up for the above image the foreground mountain was “moving” in and out of the sun. The transitions were quick but I was able to capture several shots with it partially lit.
The mountain to the right is known as 4 Peaks. When viewed from most locations here in the valley you can see 4 distinct peaks. This view does not quite lend itself to that and the shadowing from the cloud cover doesn’t help either. Satisfied with the shots I had, we packed up and headed out. There is only so much of 110 degree heat one can stand. Especially an 8 year old.
Until next time…
