Snow-Dusted Desert Mountains

Snow-Dusted Desert Mountains

For a few days in the winter of early 2015, the scrubby mountains of eastern Arizona, in the upper Salt River watershed, shed their normally bleak appearance for this wondrous and unusual scene of fresh, light snow. Seen from the airplane, it was a somewhat hazy view, but stacked polarizing and UV/haze filters took care of that mess, making the scene pop nicely as if the air were clean. This is the transition zone, geographically, geologically and biologically, between the high Colorado Plateau and the Sonoran Desert, containing Phoenix, into which I was flying.
