For the past week or so I have been in Tucson Arizona visiting family. One of the benefits of this part of the country is that the skies are clear — most of the time. With every visit here I make plans for taking some pictures at night as well as during the day. This visit was during the local monsoon season when the skies are cloudy, the temperature is high, as is the humidity, and it rains. So most of my pictures are of the spectacular desert and mountain scenery around the Tucson valley and mountains.
Using the Microsoft software program, Photosynth, I’ve composed several panoramas of various locations around the Tucson area. Panoramas are from a park and a natural spring on the east side of Tucson; the Saguaro (Cactus) National Park; and along the Catalina Highway on Mt. Lemmon.
