Photographer's Note

I always complain about the heat, so where do I decide to live…in the desert! Yeah, I know…I’m not that bright unless someone’s throwing a lamp at me!?

With temperatures already having reached into the mid–upper 80’s (30c) here in the Phoenix valley, and a good portion of the U.S. getting repeatedly pounded by ice, snow storms and cold weather…I wanted to try and sympathize as best I can with something you might not necessarily expect to see from Arizona. Far from being uncommon, this wintry scene does happen…albeit at higher altitudes. There has actually been snowfall in Phoenix however, but it’s very rare. Nothing compared to the rest of the country, but with it, I can still make the same sized snowball if necessary! :)

The landscape is certainly that of the Southwest, but it surely takes on a different mood under the foggy skies and snow covered ground. From what I understand, a lot of Europe, particularly the U.K. and Ireland, have also withstood relentless storms this season. Too bad we can’t exchange some of this crazy weather.

Thanks for stopping by.
