The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Tina.

Says she: “We’d love for you to share something that was a treat for you…”

My first post reminded Annegee of a plane ride she took, which reminded me of yet another plane ride I took a number of years ago, courtesy of a cousin in Tucson, AZ. It was a treat!

The views are the Tucson area, including mountain-top radar installations, Biosphere 2an abandoned copper mine, and Rincon Peak, I believe.

Stay safe, be well. Be kind to one another.

    1. Thanks John. I think it has a minimum ‘free’ storage. It’s why I’m there. It surprised me this time as when I copied the Share link the whole tile picture showed in my post. I didn’t have to do a faux tile screenshot .

      1. I applied for an account. It’s not a lot of space they offer for free, but certainly enough to last awhile. I can see it would be a space saver on my WP account for galleries.


  1. Great aerial shots, John, in both posts. I only ever flew one time, coming over to the US, and was so scared I don’t remember too much about it. I think I had a window seat but tried not to look out. The flight was smooth and the landing flawless but I’ve never been in a plane since. I think I missed out on some great experiences because of my fear of flying. One man’s treat is another’s nightmare. Thanks for sharing these pictures. Was also interested to read about the CloudUp thing. I’ve been deleting older posts because I’d reached my maximum so I’ll have to look into this alternative.

      1. You are welcome. We toured Jerome, AZ and Tuzigoot, National Park. Both of them told a lot about copper mining and what they had to do to rebuild the soil in some areas – taking contaminated soil out and bringing in new soil. I have a several Arizona posts. Jerome was a ghost town after the mine closed, then it boomed with tourists. During COVID, when I drove through it in July is was rather ghostly again. Have a great weekend, John. 🙂
