Shadow Shot Sunday

The top photo is my choice for my Shadow Shot Sunday pic. I took these last Sunday at a rest stop about half way between Prescott and Phoenix called Sunset Point. It was too early in the day for the sun to be setting, but I really liked the way the shadows appeared in the folds of the land.

Have a great weekend.

The shadows tone down these beautiful vistas. The bright sun makes the landscape bright, the hills and mesas have a rich textural shadows. The wide open spaces in this mountainous desert are a sight to behold, sweeping in a way we cannot see in New England. Wonderful views!

Beautiful scenery Cassie, especially for this southern girl who has never visited your area!

I love the shadows in the folds of the land too! Way different weather here ~ we just had 27 inches of bright white snow!

Is Sunset Point still open as a rest stop? It seems as though the state government has closed every other rest stop in Arizona, which forces drivers to have excellent bladder control--or wear Depends!

Beautiful scenes! I could look on forever.

The view is spectacular! The mountains create interesting shadows. '

I've never been to a rest stop with such an amazing vista, ;-)

Neat shots. Arizona sounds very attractive right now. When I first came to Idaho, I couldn't see any reason to go south in the winter. Now, 35 or so years later, it seems like good sense!
Thanks for coming by!
