Memory of the Old West

I love the train tracks south of Hunt Highway, which is only a few miles from my house. I’ve taken a few pictures there, but this latest I really wanted to try and do something different with it.

It’s made to look old, obviously, but the texture on it comes from a nearby desert park. I found an old rock that had some cool colors, swirls and textures to it. It’s overlayed on this photos to really give it an old look…maybe like faded parchment?

Definitely reminds me of something from an old western photos.

The Green Arizona Desert

My buddy Jon who was in town with his family this past weekend joined me for a hike of the San Tan Mountains just southeast of the Chandler-Gilbert area. It’s a neat little regional park that I never really paid much attention to until I started getting into photography.

The views were great, but one of the main reason I went out there was to capture the greenery that is now covering much of the desert floor here in Arizona. The incredible amount of rainfall has created greenish tints to all the mountains around town and when you examine them closely, you’ll find newly growing grass, weeds and other vegetation.

Some of these vertical photos might look cool together in a side-by-side display…maybe three frames together, or one wide frame with three spots. I may try to do that myself.

This last photo is just a wide landscape shot of these cliffs on the south area of the San Tan Mountain range. It was too far for us to hike that day, but I plan to get closer eventually.

Storms and Clouds over the Arizona Skies

Monday was eventful in terms of capturing some cool shots of storms, clouds and falling rain around the Phoenix area. I drove out to Apache Junction and snapped some shots of the incoming storm, plus a few other cloud pictures.

Mmmm, I love clouds.

After the rain…the sunlight streams through a hole in the clouds.

Impending storm heads to the east Valley.

Winter Storm Photos: Part 1

Some storm photos from the weekend. These below all were shot south of town along State Route 87. We went off the road for a bit onto a side road and ended up spotting some amazing stuff, like this old bridge below adorned with graffiti. We actually found TONS of graffiti, but that’s another post for another day.
