I finally received a replacement for my broken Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 first generation lens. I replaced it with the second generation lens. And I decided that I needed to head out and check it out.
So I went east from Phoenix into the Tonto National Forest along the Apache Trail, otherwise known as AZ 88.
It is paved until just past Tortilla Flats where it turns into a dirt road for something like 20 miles until you reach the Roosevelt dam.
Just east of Apache Junction, I saw this small butte off in the distance and decided to pull over and hike to the spot. And I found a composition I liked and decided to setup and take some photographs.
This video is my visit to the location of the photograph "Apache Trail Afternoon." In the video I talk through why I choose this spot for this photograph. I hope you enjoy the video!
