After blowing my own horn in my last couple of blog posts and talking about the beauty of Arizona, I figured that I would give my blog a big bowl of fresh ocean air while recognizing and promoting the work of fellow French (and also Canon equipped) photographer, Jérôme Houyvet of Lumières Marines (www.lumieresmarines.com), as he gets ready to release his new book in May 2016, entitled “Vol au-dessus de la Grande Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel” (Flight Over the Great Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel).
April is a fantastic month for awards and recognition at Studio Laurent!… After finding out recently that another image of mine had been featured on AZCentral.com and their Facebook page and receiving more than 2,700 likes and 660 shares (see my earlier blog post), today one of my image from Upper Antelope Canyon was awarded Photo of the Day on www.CaptureMyArizona.com !!!
Who said the Arizona landscape was just dry, brown and had no color? It’s Springtime in Arizona and that means even the desert surrounding Phoenix is coming to life with many different flowers of all colors blooming all over. I captured these images last night, just before sunset, at the McDowell Sonoran Preserve in North Scottsdale. Enjoy!
Yesterday, sometimes in between Easter brunch and Easter dinner, I made use of my membership pass and went to shoot flowers and cacti at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.
