Good, natural desert landscape locations...

Anyone have any suggestions for nice, natural desert landscape locations for an automotive shoot? Something not TOO far out of the way, but something that would be quiet, have a lot of room to move around and would have some kind of at least somewhat spectacular, Arizona scenery. I have a couple locations, but have a shoot coming up and am looking for other locations to possibly shoot the car at instead or in addition to.

If you're afraid of announcing your good spot to the world, a PM would be awesome. Any help or suggestions is appreciated!

Lol.


That is not what he is looking for. Thanks for playing, though.

I've used that spot a few different times. It's a good quick stop along the way, which I considered, but not really up to par with what I'm looking for and wouldn't give me enough room to move around like I need to. Also trying to avoid locations with too many looky-loos, given what car I'm shooting. Probably should've mentioned that, along with the fact that it may be trailered to the location... which might make things difficult. Ugh, this is tough. Thanks for the post, though.

Here's some shots I snapped at that location over the years.









That 335i shot is OLD and the first shoot I ever did for someone who I didn't know. Not my first paid shoot, though, as I did it for free.

Ideally looking for locations more like this...



But that's not likely. Might end up using this location, then moving it somewhere else, but even this isn't quite up to the standard I'm looking for. Took these a few days ago.

Ahhh, didn't read into "natural" quite enough.

Ended up kind of near Fountain Hills and I think the photos turned out pretty good. Will probably post one or two in the other thread once I get them polished up and get the go ahead.
