Yesterday was supposed to be a 60% chance of rain in town, but we ended up with only a few afternoon storms to the east of Phoenix and nothing else all night. My little girl and I headed out to the Superstition Mountains after picking her up from the sitter and saw some beautiful clouds to go along with the stunning vistas of those great cliffs and peaks.

This is looking northward from the southern side of Apache Junction. We weaved our way through the housing up there to find a spot devoid of man-made objects to get this shot off. Lyla was busy with Toy Story in the car, which allowed me to setup and get my brackets before moving on to the next location.

Definitely have fallen in love with these mountains...they are just so beautiful and picturesque...it almost feels like a cop-out using them for photos now...it's almost too easy.

    LOL....ok, going forward, I want you to shoot with your eyes closed!! Another magnificent capture, Mike. I always like the way you include a few cactus in the foreground. And those clouds provide such beauty in addition to nice shadows.

    Superstition Mountains are so beautiful! If you get a chance drive around to Gold Canyon, nice area to shoot as well.
