The contrast between Winter in the desert and real Winter in the Frozen North is dramatic. This was a lovely day between Christmas and New Year's Day. We hiked into the Superstition Mountains east of the Salt River Valley with temperatures in the 60s and not a cloud in the sky. When you look at this image closely, you will start to see the faces in the rocks. The Superstitions are inhabited by all sorts of strange rock creatures. I liked the curves and the narrow window in the rocks, but I felt that the straight saguaro was a counterpoint to the shapes of the rocks. It almost seems as if it were planted there on purpose, just for this photo.
