This gallery of landscapes includes images from the mountains, valleys, and desert plains of Arizona, New Mexico, and southern California. Many of these images are included in the book, Landscapes of the American Southwest. This is my favorite region in the world to photograph. There is a quiet and sacred quality to the high desert. The sky is blue and the air crisp and clear. Arizona and New Mexico include Navajo Nation and Hopi Nation; California is home to numerous Native American tribes. It is a rich and multifaceted historically significant region of North America.
