I try to get out West to visit my family as much as possible and the fact that they live out in the desert makes these trips not just a wonderful reunion with people I love - but also a nice little warm weather escape when the weather on the east coast is still dismal and cold.
I made an trek out in early Spring. We were still getting snow at home but once I arrived in Arizona it was perfection.
I pretty much lose my mind while I'm there trying to take the perfect sunset and sunrise photo. I got up early and drove out to some of the hills around tow. I stopped randomly on the side of the road when we were coming home from dinner so I could catch the last rays of the sun. I think I was driving my parents a little nuts and I still never felt like I was capturing how beautiful it was.
The great thing is that there is always another chance to get the perfect photo!
My visit was wonderful and relaxing and I'm once again counting the days until my next trip. Thank goodness the weather here has finally improved and we're fully enjoying Spring. We don't have quite the dramatic sunsets here, but with the flowers and green everywhere I've still been taking pics nonstop. I hope everyone is getting some sun, enjoying Spring and taking beautiful pictures!
