Arizona – Unique and Eclectic landscape photography
I love traveling the state of Arizona. The landscape is so varied and open. These conditions make it a great place to take pictures. I started taking pictures with a 35mm range finder camera that my father gave me when I was 15 and have been hooked ever since. Having lived in Arizona almost 30 years, I have a number of photographs from around the state.
I chose three of my favorites in the images above. Havasu Falls on the Hulapai Reservation is actually 5 photos stitched together. After stitching them, I took some time and used a few high dynamic range tools and edited the photo. Although it looks a bit surreal, it’s very close to what it looks like in-person.
The second photo is of Oak Creek Canyon which is near Sedona. David Alley and I spent the day taking photos and this is one of the places we stopped. It had snowed the night before so it was a perfect time to get a shot of the creek.
Finally, the third photo was taken in Bisbee, Arizona. I happened to be there on business the night before and I was leaving town, I stopped for breakfast at the Breakfast Club. Just down the street, I saw this old taxi and a number of other vintage vehicles. Of course, I had my camera with me and I couldn’t resist stopping to take a few. Bisbee is an old mining town, rich in history with antique shops restaurants and other attractions that are great for a weekend visit.
