Borrego Springs

I was told Borrego Springs was a great place to check out  the wildflowers. On this particular trip I didn’t see anything. However, driving through this town you can’t help but notice to cool metal sculptures that are spread throughout the town. This gallery of metal art is called Galleta Meadows.  Now seeing a dragon in the middle of a desert is pretty cool. What better way to make it even more spectacular than to see it at night with the stars. This was 92 images blended and stacked around 50 minutes. I did a separate exposure for the foreground as well. The red lights came in handy!

If you’re ever in Borrego Springs these sculptures are not to be missed!

American Southwest

Took another trip out to the southwest for a few days. For those who know me, Monument Valley is my favorite place of all time. I don’t know what it is about that place, but it makes me feel happy everytime I’m there. The first day I arrived it rained. The clouds were moving fast breaking up and letting the beautiful light shine through. I think I captured something great that day. My main goal was to catch the sunrise, which I did in 26 degree weather along with several other photographers.

Then it was off to Flagstaff Az. I’ve heard and seen quite a few photos of Grand Falls and always wanted to check it out. This place it basically in the middle of nowhere east of Flagstaff. The sunset that day was pretty amazing and worth the drive.

After that I stopped off in Phoenix to check out Superstition Mountain. We didn’t have many clouds that day, but the cactus was blooming. My trip to the southwest was short but successful and I’ll definitely be back!
