Silver Road

Thumb Butte Road, Prescott, Arizona

The morning after an April snow brought breaking clouds as the storm front moved on. I drove west out of downtown Prescott into the hills, on Thumb Butte Road. The thin layer of wet snow was still sticking to the ground and the trees and shrubs.

Stopping at a small turnout, I was able to shoot back into the sun. The clouds provided just enough screening to avoid lens flare, and the wet road was shining silver with the reflection of the bright sky. The “S” curve to the road was a distinct bonus, composition wise.
