This photo looks out towards north Scottsdale and the McDowell Mountains. We regularly have visibility of mountain ranges that are 50 miles (80 km) in the distance. The McDowell Mountains are about 20 miles (30 km) away. Click to enlarge for details.
Other than the Arizona theme day post tomorrow, for the next few days I will share a few photos of nightscapes using the lessons we learned from our Full Moon Photography class last Friday night at the Desert Botanical Gardens. I hope you enjoy this series and the fabulous Moon rise we captured.
