Amazing experience in Sedona a day ago viewing an intense sunset which had the red rocks glowing, watching the Strawberry Moon rise over the red rocks at 10 pm and then getting up at 4:45 to witness the sun rise over the red rocks too! I sat with my teenage boys on our balcony and we were in awe as the moon began to peek an hour after it came up from the horizon. The moon glow got more intense by the minute and then to see it show face was simply awesome! This image is a composite of two images that I took a day ago.....one as the moon rose up over the red rocks (just the moon) and then the other is of the red rocks that I took 7 hours later in the morning when they were not just backlit. I would say that this image is the perfect representation of the beauty we experienced over a 7 hours span while in Amazing Sedona! It really was Epic! Is it real? Well yes. The moon light is simply too intense to photograph with other objects nearby. Most lenses are unable to handle/focus on other objects and the moon at the same time. The camera likes one or the other. Very tricky! This is the reason both the moon and mountains have been merged into this composite. I hope you enjoy it. . . . #Arizona #capturearizona #abc15 #beon12 #fox10phoenix #3tv #adventures_az #oh_arizona #instagram_az #12newsaz #phoenixrises_az #Arizonaisgorgeous #visit_arizona #igers #igersphoenix #instagood #agameoftones #Strawberrymoon #june18 #Sedonamoon #awesome_photographers #roamtheplanet #ig_arizona #weownthenight #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #visit_mesa #sedonaprime #earthfocus #arizonasfamily

First evening float of the Summer, looking forward to more. Note to all who fish and visit the rim lakes... Please, please pick up after yourselves. Fishing line, hooks, trash, glass, chairs, plastic, everything. Your innocent weekend visit to the lake becomes not so after your refuse is ingested by wildlife and pets (including my dog). I want to make threats, explain how this only furthers my hatred of the human species (in general), but that's pointless. Please, though, have a modicum of respect for the places you recreate and just pick up after yourself. It's easy, just... Pick it up. Thanks 😊 #charliehikes #rimlakes #lnt #leavenotrace #innature #trashypeople #azgfd #gameandfish #arizona #arizonahighways #mogollonrim #payson #12newsaz #fox10phoenix #cbs5az #goodmorningarizona #telleveryoneyouknow

The Avenue Hotel was built in 1901,In its prime, the hotel was primarily a place to stay for railroad workers. Almost every room has its own story. One room is named after a former hotel waitress and maid named Mable, who was found dead inside in 1905, which was ruled as a suicide. #huntedplaces #paronormal #oldtowns #oldhistory #azfamily #tucson #azhighways #arizona #12newsaz #visitarizona #ghosttowns #azsunsets #tucsonnewsnow #12newsaz #azhighways #instagramaz #arizonadailystar #yestg #ig_arizona #devine_deserts #thingsnolongerthere #capturearizona #conquerarizona

Monsoon season has officially begun here in Arizona! Most don't know that we actually have rain storms quite often during our summer months. Storm clouds roll in unexpectedly, dust storms can be a huge surprise and bolts of lighting light up our desert. Monsoon definitely adds an extra layer to our beautiful surroundings. While it is amazing/exciting for photographers.....it can be dangerous. Dust storms are certainly no joke. Lets hope we just get the rain....and soon to help dampen the Superstitions-to help the fire fighters out. . . . #Fourpeaks #Intensesunset #Arizona #AZcentral #abc15 #beon12 #nature_photography__ #adventures_az #visitaz #instagram_az #12newsaz #phoenixrises_az #igerslandscapes #DesertPhotography #AZFamily #Visit_AZ #Awesomearizona #sunset #Arizonaisgorgeous #see_arizona #capturearizona #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #MesaArizona #aaa_via #igers #igersphx #fox10phoenix #instagood #visit_mesa

I had so much fun in Jerome today. Visiting this studio was the highlight! The potter was such a nice man as he explained his craft to me as well as telling me about other places I might like to photograph.

The Magic of Dark - Grand Canyon National Park just received it's dark sky certification, part of a 3 year effort to replace light fixtures within the park so the lights don't drown out the faint glow of the celestial bodies in the night sky. It's getting increasingly hard to view scenes like this within the Park without the glow from Las Vegas, St. George, Kanab, Kingman, Williams, Page (etc etc ...) and even Tusayan degrading the night sky. Hopefully this certification will give the Park a path to encourage other communities in the region to help preserve the night sky too. Setting a terrific example, Flagstaff has been a dark sky city for nearly 20 years. I often wander the western part of the Grand Canyon this time of year precisely because the night sky is so incredibly vivid. When I see the Milky Way Galaxy it reminds me of how lost we become in World full of problems we create, and how small we are in the bigger scheme of things. It's good to be humbled. This timelapse starts in moon light as the moon sets and ends at dawn. It's particularly hard to capture the dynamic range of night to day transitions in a timelapse. I shot this series last month and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.

VOLUME UP!!!🔊🐍🏜️ • Often times when I show up at someone's home to remove a snake I will hear it before I see it. Rattlesnakes make a lot of noise! As long as their rattle isn't wet, you can hear them from quite a long distance. • What are your thoughts? • #rattlesnake #desert #snake #visitarizona #keepitwild

It's really not worth testing out a long lens without a good subject. Almost all of my IG shots are from the Grand Canyon. Rest assured, this lens will deliver some terrific tight canyon shots in the future. Thanks to my friend Todd Martin for doing donuts in the sky in the name of testing!

I have ran this hill...hiked this hill...done it in snow up to my knees...done it with a 20 pound vest...rode it half way on a bike...hiked to the other side to see another view...hiked with all three kids ...I have put in hundreds of miles and know it upside down and inside out. And that's before I heard there was a cave up there. Then I forgot about the cave until it popped back up on social media again. So today I put in another six miles looking for what can be gotten to in under two. Bloody shins...bloody wrist...scratches on my forearms and legs...looks like I wrestled a bobcat...explored an entire hill that didn't need exploring....but I found the dam cave finally. Haha. Hard work and sweat...over FOUR hours of solid hiking and climbing and cussing. Haha. But it paid off....frustrated..hard headed ..and determined...it was found. . . . . . . . #instagramaz #ilovearizona #explorearizona #explore #arizona #visitarizona #naturalarizona #see_arizona #cave #putinthemiles #putinthetime #azfamily #prescottaztrailpics #conquerarizona #12newsaz #fox10phoenix #abc15arizona

The Woodbury Fire is a sad reminder that we should never take views like this for granted. Here is the Superstition Mountains this past winter. Pray for the firefighters.

The Grand Theatre in Douglas, Arizona, opened in 1919. The Grand Theatre was closed in 1958. The Beaux Arts style building was considered one of the most deluxe entertainment venues in the Southwest and played host to vaudeville performers and other entertainment legends in its heyday. #azfamily #tucson #azhighways #arizona #12newsaz #visitarizona #ghosttowns #azsunsets #tucsonnewsnow #12newsaz #azhighways #instagramaz #arizonadailystar #yestg #ig_arizona #KOLD #devine_deserts #thingsnolongerthere #capturearizona #conquerarizona

Have to share this beauty again to celebrate the beginning of monsoon season! Now, you all know me, and I don't count monsoon as officially starting until we have three consecutive days with a dew point over 55°, but the @nws classifies it starting June 15th for awareness. Happy First Day of Monsoon, y'all! Here's hoping we have a wet summer to help and prevent wildfires 🤞🤞🤞 #azweather #arizonaweather #arizonamonsoon #azmonsoon #monsoon2018 #monsoon2019 #azcentral #xaz @azcentral #12newsaz   @12newsaz #beon12 #fox10phoenix @fox10phoenix #azwx #lightning #jessiegardnerphotography

I am so sad that we have a huge fire happening now north of Gold Canyon (near the Superstitions) and many fire fighters are trying to battle this mega blaze. (12,000 acres already consumed and 0 containment as of Friday morning) I can't tell you how many times I have photographed Tonto National Forest and/or the area north of Apache Junction. Currently a 40 mile stretch is closed in both directions in between Apache junction and Roosevelt Lake. Lets hope they can get it contained very soon and that everyone involved stays safe. Devastating to even think about.....so much beauty there and over 600 fire fighters are battling. This image was taken in Apache Junction at Goldfield Ghost Town.....not far from there. . . . #Arizona #AZcentral #abc15 #beon12 #Oh_arizona #adventures_az #visitaz #instagramaz #12newsaz #phoenixrises_az #ig_arizona #DesertPhotography #AZMountains #AZFamily #ghosttown #sunset #Awesomearizona #see_arizona #oh_arizona #arizonaisgorgeous #igersphx #DesertBeauty #capture_arizona #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #viaadventure #earthpix #Goldfield #GoldfieldGhostTown #Visit_arizona

On May 20, 1915, El Teatro Carmen theater opened.. a Spanish-language theatre in Tucson's barrio. Tucson became a Southwestern cultural center in the 1920s as music, operas, and theatrical productions became an important part of life in the desert town. #azfamily #tucson #azhighways #arizona #12newsaz #visitarizona #ghosttowns #azsunsets #tucsonnewsnow #12newsaz #azhighways #instagramaz #arizonadailystar #yestg #ig_arizona #KOLD #devine_deserts #thingsnolongerthere #capturearizona #conquerarizona
