Just Desert

Panoramic View
Sabino Canyon
Tucson, AZ

It doesn't take long to discover the real charm of Tucson. The city is surrounded by majestic mountains and rock formations. Both mornings and evenings are graced by spectacular views in the skies as the sun emerges and vanishes lighting the horizon like a glowing ember. This is Arizona a western frontier state. Descriptive words come to mind like spectacular, magnificent, and majestic. Feelings also come to mind such as the likes of awestruck and spellbound.

Each day, either on my way to work or coming home from work, I gaze contemplatively at ridges outlining the city. On occasions they are dusted this time of the years with what appears to be confectioners sugar. It's mother natures own blanket. She drops snow at those higher elevations. The snow quickly melts and races down the likes of Sabino Canyon providing water to the parched Sonoran desert. 

Here three elements, fire, desert and water provide a virtual harem of diversity and joy. If you are a photographer this place is for you. If you love nature and the outdoors you must come here and enjoy the views. If you need to feel alive again the mountains and high desert invite you.
