Arizona

Four Kodachrome film photos from a trip to southeastern Arizona in 1998 featuring Ramsey Canyon and Lower Sonoran desert.

Cactus Garden at Arizona Desert Museum  This cactus garden was photographed on Kodachrome 200 slide film at the Arizona Desert Museum near Tucson in August 1998. Ramsey Canyon Scene  This Kodachrome 200 slide film photo was made in the famous Ramsey Canyon Preserve of The Nature Conservancy near Sierra Vista, AZ in August, 1998. The lush green is due to the fact that it was during the monsoon season which is southern Arizona’s equivalent of spring. Ramsey Canyon Scene  This Kodachrome 200 slide film photo was made at the very end of the canyon on the same day as the previous one after a somewhat difficult hike that involved climbing over rocks. I am told that it is possible to chimney up the crevice and out of the canyon, but I wouldn’t want to try. I like this photo because of the texture of the rocks which seems so real that I can almost feel their roughness under my fingertips.
Tucson Desert Park  This hillside covered with saguaro cactus and other Lower Sonoran vegetation was photographed at the Tucson Desert Park near Tucson, AZ in August, 1998 with Kodachrome 200 film.
