Prescott Footbridge

Proscott Footbridge

Well, I think I’ve finally reached the end of my Ireland photographs.  I may decide to post a few others down the line as I look at them again with fresh eyes but for now I’ve posted all of the ones that I thought worthy.

My next series of images come from a few different trips to Prescott and Sedona in Northern Arizona.  One of the things I love about Arizona is our various landscapes.  I live in the Southern part of Arizona where the Sonoran Desert landscape dominates.  Traveling a few hours North gets me into forest land and a 20 degree drop in temperature.  Honestly, that climate and scenery is much more to my liking but for now it serves as an occasional sweet escape rather than home.

I was in Prescott with my family a few weeks ago visiting my Wife’s dad and decided to go out on my own with the camera for awhile.  I was driving down Willow Lake Road on my way to Watson Lake and happened to glance out the driver-side window and see potential for a good shot.  I drove until I found a place to (legally) pull off the side of the road and park.  I hiked about a quarter mile back to this bridge and began exploring the scene.  The landscape was beautiful enough on its own (the clouds were quite picturesque that day) but I also like the added point of interest that the fence brings to the shot.
