PHOENIX -- This month's Arizona Highways was a major undertaking, months in the making and probably one of the most difficult issues to put together in the magazine's storied history. The issue features the magazine's 50 greatest photos of all time.
Arizona Highways is known for its incredible photography, so choosing the 50 best was no small feat.
This is the first time, Arizona Highways has done this kind of issue. As editor-in-chief Robert Stieve explained to Scott Pasmore, they started with about 10,000 photos.
"We've been around 88 years," Stieve said. "Almost any issue could be a greatest-hits kind of issue. We're blessed with great photography. We got the crazy idea: Let's try and come up with the 50 best of all time.
"The photos really speak for themselves. ... These are the best," Stieve continued.
The December issue of Arizona Highways is on newsstands this week.
