Default Arizona Snow & Lens Flare

Unusual to have snow on the Superstition Mountains-highest elevation is about 5000-0 feet but still is in the "Valley of the Sun". Lens flare-fog on the valley floor on the right side of the shot.

K5iis using DA 16-45 ISO 400 shot in RAW DNG no filters

Very nice! I've never gotten used to seeing cacti and other desert plants covered with snow, even though it does happen. Always fun to see it.

I hiked that trail in October on a trip to AZ. It was in the mid 90's and it felt so much warmer to an Ohio guy like me. I can't even imagine that area seeing even a dusting of snow! So crazy!

I like the shot flair and all,

Thanks for the kind comments-anyone know if taking " lens flare " shots harm the sensor?

Great shot of the snow and sun - and fascinating story as well.

Do not know the answer to your flare question, but have taken a number of very bright shots with no apparent damage...

Thanks for your feedback-probably not make a habit of "flare"
A little unnerving when you are not comfortable doing it
