Desert morning at PIR….

My oldest son works as a real-estate agent, builds indoor water-features, used to work with an electrical contractor as a CAD designer…and he absolutely loves the desert.  This is a photo he made over a dozen years ago when he was out at Phoenix International Raceway for a job with the electrical contractor.  I’ve been past the racetrack multiple times over the years, but have never gone inside to watch an event, so I can only guess as to my son’s location when he made the photograph…somewhere facing south, as the sunrise was to his left.  That is the eastern edge of the Estrella Mountains in the distance.

  1. It’s beautiful the way the tones move from warm yellows all the way to cool blues, and the color change seems to be echoed by the mountain silhouettes. He inherited your aesthetic sense, I think!

    • He certainly captured quite a spot…time of day, lighting, position, perspective…and rendered it beautifully. 🙂

  2. Lynn is a hard act to follow. I couldn’t have said it better than she did. As she also implied you’re a hard act to follow, but he’s not far behind. 😀

    • Yes, she is, Gunta…it’s often difficult to frame a meaningful comment when coming in after Lynn. That said, I appreciate your sentiments…,,,encouragement. As always. Thank you.

  4. Beautiful image, Scott, with those soft colours. Your son is a talented young man. Isn’t it great when our children share our own interests. My son’s a graphic designer and a keen photographer and our individual work is always a talking point when we meet.
