I can never get over how beautiful these mountains are. That’s why I love to photograph them and present them in different ways for your enjoyment. Here I used Photomatix HDR software on 3 images as well as some overlay textures to bring out the contrasts in these mountains. Shot with a Canon 60D.

The Superstition Mountains, popularly referred to as “The Superstitions” or “The Supes”, are a range of mountains in Arizona located to the east of the Phoenix metropolitan area. They are anchored by Superstition Mountain, a large mountain that is a popular recreation destination for residents of the Phoenix, Arizona area.

The mountain range is in the federally-designated Superstition Wilderness Area, and includes a variety of natural features in addition to the mountain that is its namesake. Weaver’s Needle, a prominent landmark and rock climbing destination set behind and to the east of Superstition Mountain, is a tall erosional remnant 1 that plays a significant role in the legend of the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. Peralta Canyon, on the northeast side of Superstition Mountain, contains a popular trail that leads up to Freemont Saddle, which provides a very picturesque view of Weaver’s Needle. Miner’s Needle is another prominent formation in the wilderness and a popular hiking destination.

As with most of the terrain surrounding the Phoenix metropolitan area, the Superstition Mountains have a desert climate, with high summer temperatures and a handful of perennial sources of water. The altitude in the more remote, eastern portion of the wilderness is higher than the western portion, which lowers temperatures slightly. Numerous hiking trails cross the mountains from multiple access points, including the Peralta Trailhead, the most popular.2 The Lost Dutchman State Park, located on the west side of Superstition Mountain, includes several short walking trails.
