Sedona Views

Enough of slot canyons for a moment. Steve and I spent the past two days in the area around Sedona, AZ, a place as equally delightful for photographers because the amazing red rock views go on for miles and miles in all directions.

This first photo is a classic from Sedona -- Cathedral Rock reflected in the waters of Oak Creek at sunset. We managed to find our way there in time to take a few shots before the sun was gone. In order to get the reflection, we had to ditch our shoes/hiking boots and wade across the slippery, submerged rocks of Oak Creek to reach the other side. Oh boy, talk about COLD water. Reminds me of another Oak Creek of which I am fond just outside of my very favorite place on the planet, Corvallis, OR.

The second photo is simply one incredible view of the red and white sandstone cliffs and rocks in the area. If you have never been to Sedona, I highly recommend adding it to your bucket list. Enjoy!
