One of the many unique things about Lost Dutchman State park is that the city lights up the mountain for long exposures creating dramatic scenes under clear and dark skies.
I’ve been thinking about photographing downtown Phoenix at sunset from this location, the top of Terminal 4 parking garage, for a long time. Last night I finally made the time and was discouraged to see that this location is not good for what I was wanting. But I was able to salvage some pretty good photos of the airport.
Side note, if you have any suggestions of high perches from which to shoot downtown Phoenix, please let me know!
This is my first foray into night sky photography. This was at McDowell Mountain Regional Park as part of an Arizona Highways workshop.
Quinn and his friends hit up the skatepark. I brought my camera.
The Bad Plus are my long-running favorite jazz band. I’ve been seeing them for about 15 years and have always been captivated by their music. Last year they had their first lineup change with new pianist Orrin Evans. They are touring in support of their latest release “Never Stop II”, an excellent album.
On February 12th, they found their way back to the beautiful MIM Theater, a room that discerning musicians love for its impeccable sound.
A hike around Dreamy Draw Park in Phoenix, Arizona reveals some striking landscapes.

I went on a quick walk through downtown Phoenix with my wide-angle lens, remembering that the best way to see any city is on foot.
