Great set! Beautiful color and forms.

My house was less than a mile from Watson Lake and I used to walk there several days a week. The change in appearance during the year is amazing as the water level rises and falls.

Your first image is in exactly the same direction as my series, https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1744489 capturing the Granite Dells, the mountains east of Prescott Valley and the San Francisco Peaks.

Thank you Rich! That must have been a great place to live! I would like to return and spend more time there.

Cheers,
Ross

Great shots! 3 and 5 are my favorites. I saw another FMer post about this place several years ago, and managed to stop by while on a road trip for some sunrise shots. Unfortunately I also had a multi-day case of the explosive runs at the time too, so it was a short photo session.


@The Rat, Thank you!
Oh man, that sounds like a miserable experience due to your illness!

Nice! Had I known you would be here I would have directed you to another area at Watson Lake. Peavine Trail on the opposite side of where you were.

And we have a memorial bench where you were for my mom. Which is hard to miss! She has a nice "view" of Watson, Glassford Hill (extinct volcano that was involved with the geology here), and the San Francisco Peaks.


Thanks @AZHeaven! That is really beautiful that you have a memorial for your mother there. I’ll look for that, and check out the Peavine Trail, next time I’m there.

Best,
Ross

I appreciate your comment @40Driggs! Inspiring each other here is what it’s all about, in my view.

Nice pastel colors contrast to the warm rock colors.

When my mom passed we received all this money from sympathy cards from family. I mentioned a memorial bench to the wife and we went to the city to order one. They bring it out and set it up for you. Cementing and chaining it down also!

As for Peavine. Try to get there soon. The past city commissioners, now voted out thankfully, voted in favor of a developer to build a subdivision in that area off the Peavine Trail.
