Jerome in the Fall

by Kristi Hines

This past weekend, my husband and I took a trip out to Jerome, AZ for another visit to the Gold King Ghost Mine Town. Along the way, while scoping out a way to get to an urbex scene down the hill, I looked up and noticed what remained of the fall colors in the town.

It’s Arth

by Kristi Hines

I think it’s official – my favorite two things to photograph are wildlife and urbex, and I simply have not had enough of the latter in my photo activities. I’m sure that must be why I have lacked enthusiasm with my lens. So I have decided to revisit some of my urbex shots, this one from the Queen Creek area.

Red Rock

by Kristi Hines

While out on my first canyoneering trip, I managed to notice some of the intricate details of the nature around me. This red rock looked perfectly placed in this spot and it begged to be photographed.

True Colors

by Kristi Hines

That’s right, I’m still stuck on the fall colors. I was hoping to get some shooting done in California this past weekend around my trip to Blog World, but the weather on the drive back was none to pleasing, so that idea was a bust. So much for the Salton Sea. 🙁

The Shady Stump

by Kristi Hines

It’s not often you see something creepy during the day, but when the light in the woods falls just the right way, you’ll find it. In this case, it was a hollowed-out tree stump in the midst of the lovely fall colors. I had hoped to find an owl sleeping in it, but oh well.

Fallen Leaves

by Kristi Hines

One of the things I really enjoy about going handheld is seeing things I might normally notice, such as the beauty of the fallen leaves. Mixed with the rocks, it felt very zen-like.

Cathedral Rock in the Fall

by Kristi Hines

This is probably one of the most photographed natural wonders in Sedona… and it’s easy to see why. There are just so many sides to photograph it from!
