  • Tucson south into Medera Canyon
    Ten dawn to dusk photos I shot during a late February day in 2012
  • 6:20 am MST. An early dawn in late February looking east into the rising sun from my bedroom window in South Tucson.
  • The snow never melts off this high-elevation mountain standing just 21 miles north of Mexico. The teperature that day hovered around 72F. The air was pristine and not a single human sound. Not even the hum above from an aircraft.
  • As you descend rapidly into the desert and valley, park your truck, enter the desert and walk about, strange sights abound.
  • Like this series of huge Angle of Repose pyrimids guarding the Valley's floor as they have now for centuries.
  • Further north and higher and earlier from where I am now, the desert, this verticle boulder tried blocking my path.
  • Growing sleepy under the warm sun, I looked for a place to lie down for a nap on the desert floor.
  • I lay down here and used my sweatshirt for a pillow. All very comfy.
  • Then late in the afternoon ants, small, black, non-biters but annoying never-the-less, aroused me to open my eyes which immeadiatly spotted this half moon rising.
