Scottsdale Arizona Photos

The Phoenician, Scottsdale Arizona.

We (Janine) are about done with our website updates from our winter / spring travels.  We now have a separate section just for Scottsdale Arizona.  This popular tourist destination certainly warrants it’s own section. 

In addition, we also have a separate section for Fountain Hills, Arizona.  Fountain Hills isn’t nearly as famous as the neighboring Scottsdale, but if you are like me and prefer to avoid the crowds, Fountain Hills is a good alternative.

  3. Ron, this is a great photo. Did you use the 24mm tilt shift with a full frame camera to capture this? I know you use the 24mm for landscapes, and have you employed the shifting feature for architectural panoramas? I have read that there is terrible vignetting upon shifting and lack of sharpness, but I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    Hi Justin,

    Great question. The header at the top of the blog was created by shifting the 45mm tilt shift. That lens is sharp and doesn’t has little vignetting.

    I started thinking about it and surprisingly, I don’t think I have used the 24mm for a shift panoramic. I would like to. Maybe when it stop raining I will give it a try and can report back on the sharpness and light fall off in the corners, but as of now I really can’t offer an opinion.

    It was very nice – since it didn’t matter what day we visited, we actually found a day with some unbelievably cheap rates.
