Superstition Mountains - Lost Dutchman State Park, AZ
Panoramic - 13 vertical pictures
As the sun sets on the Superstition Mountain range, the low angle of sunlight really brought out the red color in the Arizona desert rock. The moment I saw pictures of this place, I was captivated by its overall appearance/look and knew that this was a place I needed to visit, especially during an Arizona sunset. I was fortunate to be able to patiently wait for the sunset at this location, which in most cases and locations I feel a little more rushed to get from place to place in time. I have to admit, being in the desert took a little adjustment and really made me appreciate the shade trees we have back home.

Back to good old slot canyons. I still have a ton of them I could post, addicting images. I will try my best to disperse them into the gallery. It is really hard to get a sense of scale when you are shooting straight up and there is no sky, but these walls are around 150 feet high. There is something just magical about swirling sandstone and slot canyons. Yep, I said it. Go find one and experience it.
It was a dark night with no moon. I used a large flashlight to paint both sides of the dune on a 2.5 min exposure. The sky was overcast that night and I was really hoping for stars, it left something to be desired in this photo, so I added the sky from another shot I took (so yes this is a composite).
