Verde Valley

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 23 March 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

Here we look out across the Verde Valley. The trees near the pueblo are growing beside the Verde River. That tiny speck you may see, just above the horizon on the left of the frame, is a hot air balloon.

A fine landscape image. I like the rocky bottom as a base for this attractive terrain. Thanks for pointing out the balloon. I think I would have missed it otherwise.
