I’m still going through photos from my 2009 trip. I took so many pictures that I got totally overwhelmed. I took this series for a panorama while stopped at the rest area near Springer, New Mexico on Interstate 25.
This is from September of 2007, a series of 9 photos stitched into a panorama. We are standing at the lookout point (about 1,000 feet above Phoenix) at South Mountain looking North towards the Valley of the Sun.
We were waiting for the full moon to rise while storm clouds rolled in from the east. We knew we wouldn’t catch the moon rising over the Union Hills, but we had fun watching the storm clouds catch the light of the setting sun.
