Watson Lake – Prescott, Arizona

January 17, 2021

The gorgeous golden hour glow at Watson Lake in Prescott, Arizona.

I finally made it to Watson Lake yesterday. Although I’m an Arizona local, there are still a lot of locations I haven’t been to yet. One of my goals for 2020? To get better acquainted with this beautiful state.

I love a good road trip and and I’m always on the lookout for unique locations for photoshoots. In the Notes app on my phone, I actually keep a list of areas around Arizona I would like to go. And I constantly update the list as I come across new spots!

The long weekend gave me the perfect opportunity to pack my camera/drone and make the 100 minute drive to Prescott. Pulling off the road at Watson Lake Park, I was ready to explore. We arrived just before sunset. As a result, we were just in time for the beautiful golden hour glow Arizona is famous for.

After winding my way through the bedrock and boulders of the grand Granite Dells, I had a great flight and found a few spectacular spots for portrait photos too!

Driving to this picturesque part of the State was well worth the time – this location scouting trip was a huge success.

Prescott is so scenic – especially the Watson Lake area. The area also offers so much to do! Camping, hiking, kayaking, and rock climbing are all attractive options. I can’t wait to come back with clients, family, and friends in the future! 

If you’d like to join one of my upcoming adventures, send me a note on the Contact page on the site. I always love the company.
