I spent all day yesterday exploring the Superstition Mountains area near Phoenix with Jim, Carol and Stephanie. I met Jim & Carol while exploring "the Wave" near the Utah/Arizona border last year and Stephanie is the president of the camera club they all belong to. I was running on about 4 hours of sleep since I had presented my Photoshop for Photographers seminar in Columbus, so I don't think I had all my brain cells available.
I've only had time to process one of the images from yesterday's shoot, which is shown above. This is a combination of a three-shot bracket of exposures to help maintain detail in the highlights and shadows.
