Sabino Canyon is the closest place that my wife and I visit for landscape photography. It's about a 20 minute drive from our home in Tucson, Arizona and there are lots and lots of trails to explore. This spot, one of our favorite views of the Catalina Mountains, is about a half mile walk from the parking lot. I have taken lots of photos from this spot but this one from January of this year is definitely my favorite.
