This is a first for me, Malcolm -- I have never seen frosty mountains and saguaro together.

Where was this photo taken? I'm pretty familiar with AZ and can't imagine the possible location. Very interesting image.

Thank you for the kind comments. Shot this early New Years Day 2015 ago in the Tonto National Forest near the Verde River and East Rio Verde Drive looking northeast with the Mazatzal mountains in the background. Since 1985 have seen snow at this elevation (2,700 Feet) 3 times. It is dramatic.

It looks quite surreal. First glance looks like 3 randomly chosen images stacked together. Then you realise it’s not! Great composition and well done on the EC

Thank you. I shot this in 2015 before I got into photoshop. Today I understand stacked images so I think the same thing. Challenges in this shot included it doesn’t snow at this elevation I Arizona often, the mountains are to the East making sunrise shots more difficult, and the snow at lower elevation typically melts shortly often sunrise. Right place at the right time. Thanks again
