Superstition Mountains

Last night The History Channel premiered a new series entitled “Legend of the Superstition Mountains”. I was really excited when I heard they were producing this show as the Superstition Mountains are basically my back yard here in Arizona. The show centers around the search by a team for the Dutchman’s Lost Gold. For those not aware, the Superstition Mountains are a 160,000 acre protected Wilderness region here in Arizona just east of Phoenix metro. The area is extremely rugged with canyons, massive cliffs, building sized boulders, towering peaks, and deep valleys full of Saguaro Cactus and various other Sonoran Desert plant and animal life. A person could truly spend an entire lifetime exploring the Superstitions.

I spend a lot of time hiking and mountain biking out in the Superstition Wilderness in search of great landscape photography. It’s not hard to come by as it seems that nearly around every bend or crest of a ridge is a majestic vista.

I really enjoyed the series premiere and look forward to more episodes. Below is a selection of some of my favorite landscape photos that I’ve created in the Superstition Mountains.

Tech: All images created with the Mamiya DF camera body, 80mm Schneider-Kreuznach LS lens or 45mm lens, and Leaf Credo 80mp digital back. Processed in Capture One Pro 8 and finished in Photoshop CS 6.
