Flying over Phoenix is so scenic! This is the northeast region...so flat with mountain bumps here and there
Cookie-cutter homes everywhere...
This is the Roosevelt Dam, at the Apache Trail, southeast of Phoenix
Another shot of the dam
Flying northwestward is Lake Bartlett. For a state so dry there are quite a few lakes dotting the desert!
On another trip, flying north to Salt Lake City. The window was filthy :-( but you can get the gyst
Arizona was my home from 2004 to 2007. During that time I thoroughly enjoyed its miles of scenic hiking; its red rock formations pulsating with energetic vortexes; its ancient mesas, buttes and canyons; and of course, its endless sunshine.
Spring brings desert bloom, where the normally dry desert is lush with bright, beautiful colors. Summer's heat brings dramatic lightning, as well as powerful rainstorms after which everything sparkles magically amidst rainbows and sun rays. Autumn's crisp air brings foliage, where brilliant golds, yellows and oranges stand out against mountains and red rock. Finally, winter's sunsets set the sky ablaze with golds, magentas and reds. Truly, Arizona is a photographer's paradise!
Since I have so many photos of Arizona, I've separated them by region. Click on a region below to view:
