Cream of the Planet

Sensual, Thoughtful, and Very Naughty

Arizona: Superstition Mountains

Clicking on an image will open up the gallery slide show

For as long as I can remember, the mountain vistas of Arizona have called to me in a mystical voice.

I was at a business meeting in ArizonaΒ and deeply engaged in tactical planning. What was I planning? Well, I was privately calculating the time remaining before sunset, how quickly I could change and grab my camera, and estimated travel time to the Lost Dutchman State Park–gateway into the Superstition Mountains. As you can see, I made it…barely.Β 

As much as I savored this view, there was another that was far more beautiful to behold.

Hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

P.S. My typical posts usually focus on my life’s journey with a focus erotica and psychology. If you are interested in those topics, hope you will visit my home page and explore Cream of the Planet.

    I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to see these shots. It was worth the wait. 😘
    I’m so glad you made it on time and were able to capture the beauty of my back yard. The clouds in my opinion make a huge difference when photographing landscape here in the desert. I love how it filters the light yet brightens the colors.
    Really beautiful Michael. πŸ’‹

      The beauty of your back yard is definitely a sight to behold! :-):-* I made it but didn’t have a lot of time. These came from my iPhone. I probably have 200 from camera to work through and find the real beauties. The clouds were crazy that day…completely missing in some areas and then so dense in others. I just felt lost in dreamland no matter where I turned. Glad you feel like it did it justice ❀

      If you ever come to the U.S., let me know…you will need someone with local knowledge and I’d be happy to! :-)<3 If you don't mind saying, what country are you going to school in? About the photos, Arizona is beautiful and enchanting. You wouldn't go wrong with this as a first destination. Even though this area outside Phoenix and Scottsdale is beautiful, the Grand Canyon would probably be best destination πŸ™‚ I'm sure you are a wonderful photographer and hopefully you'll share some galleries. Hope you have a great day :-*
