San Tan Photographs

San Tan Cactus

Saguaro Cactus | San Tan Park, Arizona

I picked up a new camera for when I’m out traveling and quite frankly, I’m in love with it. It’s a Fuji X-E2 and it’s shots out of the camera as so beautiful, they take very little if any post processing. I can literally shoot and print… or shoot and share. Pretty incredible what Fuji is doing inside these cameras.

I took a trip to Phoenix, Arizona and made a mad dash one evening to San Tan Mountain Park (just SE of Phoenix) to grab some sunset photos of the desert. Never really made into the park itself, as I came up the backside of the mountain and had to bail off the road to get some shots before the light dipped out of sight. I’d love to take a trip back out there when I have a bit more time. But loved these photos that I came away with.

Lots of photo opportunity as the area is very flat at the base of the mountain. Just put in 6533 West Phillips Road, Queen Creek, AZ into your GPS and it will get you close to the spot… just stop anywhere along the road into the park. It’s about an hour drive outside of Phoenix, but worth the time to go check it out.
