It’s been awhile since I posted a black and white landscape image, so of course I turn to one of my favorite subjects with this Superstition Mountain storm.
Winter Weather Brings a Superstition Mountain Storm
A longtime favorite of mine are the Superstition Mountains. This blog is loaded with plenty of posts featuring the Superstitions. I’ve always said they hold a special draw to me that I can’t explain. My zen place to go to when my photography soul needs a little settling.
This winter storm was captured back in March of this year. It was a rare storm that brought some much needed rain. On the way out to the Supers I came close to turning around and giving up due to the complete overcast sky at the time. I was about halfway into the trip and figured why not continue on. Even if the photos didn’t turn out I would have my meeting with the mountains.
After hiking out a bit I could tell the clouds were moving fast and furious which would bode well for me. With enough patience I was sure I would leave here with something. I managed to grab several shots that I was happy with and processing this one to black and white was a sheer joy. I’m self described bipolar photographer. As much as I love color and warmth in my images I absolutely love the absence of color as well. Yes, I’m a little mixed up.
This trip once again proved that going out and chasing an image is what it is all about. Sometimes Mother Nature rewards you, sometimes she doesn’t and keeps you coming back for more.
Until next time…
