Light Paints the Dells, Prescott Arizona

My son Zach, who is fast becoming a pretty fantastic photographer himself, lives in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, Prescott Arizona. Now the first thing you need to know if you are going to visit Prescott is that - like New Hampshire where we pronounce many places differently than you would have expected, Prescott is not pronounced Press Cot. Instead its pronounced as  if you were saying biscuit. Prescott is Press Kit.

Now, once you are in Prescott, seek out the Granite Dells and Lake Watson. Plan to spend a lot of time there and plan to go back time and time again as changes in the sky and weather will offer you all kinds of opportunities for capturing amazing images.

The two images below are actually created from the same image, treated differently to produce a simple straightforward panorama of the Lake Watson area and then an image that is a more lowlight capture. I thought of the two different images because as I watched the sunlight fade on Lake Watson, I actually witnessed the two images. However, because the cloud forms changed during that same period and I was much more impressed with the cloud forms during the early hours, I simply sought to take the original image and create the low light situation digitally.

This image was taken early afternoon when the light was softened by the cloud cover but clearly full sunlight.

The difference between the two images is a bit more distinctive when view in larger format but each presents a different viewpoint, yet each is equally stunning.

If you would like to see them in slightly larger format here is a link to the images
