Caption Contest: Peter James and the Superstitions

Peter James Nature Photography | Superstitions

Each month, Arizona Highways’ editors write captions to accompany the photographs we use in our stories. It can be a tricky task, so we thought we’d turn the tables. When we post a new photo here each month, you’ll have a chance to write its caption.

Write a good one, and you might earn an autographed copy of Editor Robert Stieve’s book, Arizona Highways Hiking Guide: 52 of Arizona’s Best Day Hikes for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

This month, get inspired by Peter James’ image of the Superstitions and wildflowers, then post your caption in the comments section below.

Remember, a good caption tells the story of the photograph in 20-30 words (give or take). Feel free to be creative and have some fun with your words!

Your deadline: May 15. Remember, when it comes to a great caption, every word counts.

GOOD LUCK!

By submitting photographs to Arizona Highways via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr or other social networking sites, the photographer grants Arizona Highways electronic rights. No financial consideration will be paid to anyone for publication on the Arizona Highways blog or Website.
