The sun sets on AZ highway 387.

One of my passions is getting out and exploring what Mother Nature has to offer.  Rather it be an electric monsoon storm, the cool mountains, or one of the many Arizona highways. 

When I”m not shooting portraits or weddings I truly cherish these times to be outdoors.  My day job has me locked up from 8 to 5 so getting outside is more than just a breath of fresh of air.  It’s a chance to clear my head and see the land with a photographer’s eye.

Among the things I enjoy shooting are road shots.  With so many Arizona highways to choose one doesn’t have to travel far. If you follow this blog you will find several throughout it. There is something about the view of staring down an empty highway and wondering where it could take you. Ahh an escape if only for a few minutes (before that on-coming car sends you back to reality).

Of course the flip side to this is my wife’s thoughts that I’m a complete idiot for standing in the middle of a highway with a camera.  I think she doesn’t see the bigger picture, pun intended.

Until next time…
