Life is so busy right now that I rarely get out to take photos unless it’s a wedding or lifestyle session. Let’s just say I’ve seen a ton of great sunsets and sunrises from my house lately.

Even last night I had a photoshoot. So normally I wouldn’t get to take a photo like this, but I happened to be returning from Mesa and the sky went NUCLEAR and I flew to the off-ramp at Scottsdale/Rural, parked in a spot I probably shouldn’t have and ran like an idiot about 500 feet to the water’s edge.

It felt amazing to actually be in a spot with a lake, a reflection of the sky, Tempe and A-Mountain in the background and a gorgeous sunset. Made me realize how much I’m missing just being out in nature capturing awesome skies and beautiful landscapes.

Going to have to go on a road trip soon.
