This ubiquitously famous mountain range (e.g., Lost Dutchman’s Mine). is just about 10 miles east / southeast of me. Every once in a relatively rare while, a combination of cold and wet winter weather gives it a dusting of snow. This happened recently, and a couple of days later I was amazed how much snow was left. Suddenly itt cleared up, and calm winds motivated me to seize the moment & put up my MA to try to snag a shot. This was taken from 150’ AGL.hope you like!

Spaceman-66, nice photo, I've always seen those mountains in photos, on tv and in movies - but always dry, no snow, this is a welcome change.  Thanks for sharing.

Very nice! Glad it wasn't snowing when we visited. Pretty sure we were looking at the other side of Superstition in this picture. Such a cool area. We want to go BACK! This picture was taken on Silly Mountain.

Awesome pic! Taken handheld / tripod, or from a low-flying drone? Either way, nicely composed.

Mavic Pro Platinum. Silly Mountain is really fun. I'm guessing it's called Silly Mountain because it's so small in relation to the other REAL mountains. I'd love to see more videos from Phoenix. Do you have a youtube channel? If so please post.

I would have at least adjusted the horizon...

Good point - how's this attempt at an even better image?

Sure Spaceman. Well Done.
Sorry for notifying this, but years ago a experienced photographer made the same observation to some of my photos. Asking if we as humans do see a tilted horizon. So since then it's my first attention when shooting, posting or observing photos. It became a sort of repulsion to tilted horizons.
