Working for the shot

I took this photo about three years ago on top of a mountain just outside of Phoenix, AZ. It took me about an hour and a half to get to the top of the mountain and I will be the first to admit that I wasn't climbing the mountain to get this picture.

I'm not sure I understand why anybody climbs a mountain for fun!


  1. I'll bet you wish you had brought oxygen tanks along too! LOL
    I have to agree with you, just because it's there doesn't mean you have to climb it!

    Nice vista you captured, looks good in B&W too!

  2. A wonderful view of a Desert Valley!

    B&W captures the feel of the desert. Dry, Hot, Sun scorched! The pic says it all.

    Sometimes a view from the top makes the climb worth the trip!

  3. Knowing what the Spanish window marker was looking at is what made it worth the trip!! :~)

  4. I'm with Randy- I love the desert too. Great shot. I laughed out loud after reading your last line! =)Have a great week!

  5. Ron are you taking your Sigma 150-500 with you on your upcoming trip?

    All the camera gear I took this last trip weighed out at 18 lbs. including the flipside 300 backpack. I wound up with a sore back a couple of times but the pictures I got were worth the trouble.

  6. Paul, I'm taking just about everything, including a tripod!

    I'll have all three of my lenses for the D300 plus my underwater camera and a point and shoot so hopefully I won't miss a thing!
