These pictures I took while driving home today from a little trip up in the mountains. As the elevation dropped and the pine trees quickly disappeared from view, the drive home was still really beautiful. There was such a pretty sky this afternoon and I got a few nice pictures of the desert. The "Arizona highways" sure are beautiful especially during monsoon season.
I went up north to do some photographing of birds for my paintings, but came back with lot of beautiful landscape and floral reference. I look forward to starting some new paintings.
