Sabino Canyon Grandeur
As I was leaving the canyon fter a hike on New Year's Day, I turned around and saw this beautiful scene as the sun illuminated the lifting clouds.
A little used "back door" trail to Sabino Canyon is the perfect way to enter the canyon at sunrise.
Saguaros in the Mist
Standing on top of one hill, I looked across the valley to see the morning rays shining throught the mist to reveal this stand of saguaros in all their glory.
Canyon After the Rain
Hiking after a storm, when the air is cool and crisp is my favorite desert experience.
Sabino Canyon Cliff Sunrise
The canyon is narrow, so when the sun rises over the cliff, it casts great rays and shadows.
Horse at Sunset
Walking at sunset, I turned to see this horse on the hill. He paused just long enough for me to capture his peaceful meandering.
Why does the desert have such dramatic light? At the same moment in time, ominous clouds are dispelled by brillant sunlight.
The Canyon Calls You
Doesn't this canyon simply beckon you to explore its depths?
Sabino Canyon Springtime
The new spring greenery on the cottonwoods, and the calm, cool stream create an oasis in the desert.
Blue Sky After the Storm
Ethereal Morning Colors
A time of day we rarely see.... the pink rays of light in a desert glowing with the dawn.

Poppies at Picacho Peak
The verdant green and gold glory of the poppies in early spring at Picacho is even more dramatic given the vast desert valley and the blue sky sprinkled with clouds.
