The Lost Dutchman by joerossbach The Lost Dutchman by joerossbach
Just returned late last night from a 9 day trip to Arizona. I spent much of my time deep in the sandstone on the Navajo Reservation as well as the wastelands around Page and Lake Powell.

This is a shot from the last evening of the trip from Lost Dutchman State Park, just east of Phoenix. The park rests below the western flank of the Superstition Mountains and is one of the most beautiful state parks I have ever visited!

Best of Light,
Joe

I agree, stunning image and you visited around the perfect time too, I've never seen it so green here (AZ native, that place you photographed is about 30 min. from my house)

Oh my god, classic southern AZ. You should submit this to AZ Highways. :) They accept digital these days from the right people. Love all the warmth and detail in the cacti. Those greens are pretty impressive for the desert, too! :+fav:

Ha, I was going to ask the same question. I just checked my copy of the March 2010 issue and it's a different shot. It's the cactus that caught my eye.

Some sweet light there!

I had the cover of the Jan/Feb. of Outdoor Photographer with a shot from Otter Cliffs in Maine. The image you are refering to, is Jack Dykinga's shot on the March edition.

Excellent capture here, This is one of the most beautiful places I have visited and one of my favorite places to shoot. It is a shame they are going to close it. Glad you could have a chance to visit and shoot this location.

They are suppose to be closing 13 AZ state parks with lost dutchman being one of them, there are efforts to try and save that park among others.

How disappointing, I hope enough funds can be raised to reopen them in the fall. It's understandable closing them in the summer however, no one in their right minds would be outside then.
