One of the jewels of the Sonoran Desert is Cochise Stronghold in the Dragoon Mountains of southern Arizona. The photographs below were shot on three different occasions with Fujichrome Velvia and then scanned. The Dragoons are filled with hoodoos and pieces of rock that seem to have been thrown like marbles, fallen to the ground, and shoved upward.
Every step of a journey into these mountains is filled with surprises, from gnarled Manzanita bark to pond grass in Half Moon tank. It is a real paradise for photographers.
until next Monday,
a passion for the image
