As you may have noticed, or possibly not, I updated the header image recently.  My original goal was to rotate this image out more often than I actually have.  I finally got around to switch the image because I was motivated by this particular photograph.  I like the lighting and shadows, the muted colors, the perspective and the simplicity of the landscape.

I took a photography road trip to Southern Arizona last month with only a slight idea of where I was heading.  I found the location of this image on the map and decided to see if there was anything worth photographing.  There definitely was.

The image was taken in the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area near Sonoita, Arizona.  This is cattle ranching and vineyard country with miles of grasslands, majestic mountain views and long stretches of empty back roads.  If you get the opportunity and want to try your hand at some Arizona landscape and nature photography this is a fantastic area.  It is not the better known Grand Canyon and traditional desert views Arizona is know for, but it is a hidden Arizona photographic gem.
