Water in the Desert?

Ann Posiviata Yes, that’s right, it is monsoon season again. The desert is a very surprising and wondrous geographical location for weather—from the extreme temperatures of over 110 degrees in the Phoenix Valley to the freezing temperatures of 32 degrees in the depths of the Grand Canyon.

Happy Birthday, America!

Ann Posiviata “Old and Blue” was taken at the Amargosa Opera House and Hotel in Death Valley Junction. It is a historic building built in 1923 and is still operational today.

Better Together

Grand Canyon by Bob Little

We put them to use with trips around and about the Phoenix area as well as to the Grand Canyon. Whether inside or outside, our photographic skills were captured and developed during the…
