After my trip to Victoria I flew down to California and drove to Arizona with some of my family. It was time for Spring Training. We have been going to Spring Training in Scottsdale, Arizona for the past 15 years. This is where half of the Major League Baseball teams go before the regular season starts. We try to see the San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, and the San Diego Padres. The ball parks and crowds are small so getting around is pretty easy, and the players usually sign autographs before and after the games.
On one of our non-game days, I took a short hike into the Cave Creek Regional Park for some sunset photos. My goal was to scout out the area for future photo ops and to capture a few images of the sunset while I was there.
Once the sun had set over the horizon it got dark very quickly. (Up here in the Pacific Northwest I’m used to being able to continue shooting after the sun goes down.) In this image you can see the Scottsdale City lights glowing in the background.
We had a great time and I’m looking forward to next year.
