I hiked to the top of A Mountain in Tempe to photograph the moonrise; however, it was completely obscured by magnificent monsoon clouds.

Reflections of Chihuly
We see photographs of this sculpture all over Arizona as more people visit the Desert Botanical Gardens to enjoy the desert and experience Chihuly. I decided to focus on the reflection of the sculpture tucked away in the reeds.
After an afternoon of Chihuly artwork, the guests at the Desert Botanical Gardens are treated to a beautiful display of Nature's Art.

What can be more joyous and magical than a child at play?
I was raised in the Indiana, rambled through Kentucky, Georgia, Texas, and Florida before settling in Arizona in 1987. I've raised my sons, have taught thousands of students, and am now pursuing my passion, which is, of course, photography.
