Photographer's Note

Taking a side step from Salt Lake because I figured this was a better fit to follow up on my last post. Just when I thought Arizona’s monsoon season had essentially come to an end, it decided to stick around a bit longer. Although there may be nothing more than dust, debris and high winds at times, the clouds and light that come about at the end of the day can become quite amazing.

I had to go a long way to get this particular shot….the back yard! :) I was actually in the processing of writing some critiques last week when I decided to go and get a drink from the kitchen. Since I had the blinds closed while I was working on the computer, I didn’t notice how colorful the sky had become as a storm was brewing on the horizon.

Nothing more than a polarized filter was used for these shots, “Mother Nature” took over the rest of the color pallet. I did try to brighten it up some, but the digital noise in the blue portions of the sky became far too evident unfortunately!? As you can see in this main post, the moon was trying to get a jump start on the evening and was already making itself visible.

Thanks for stopping by!
