Two weeks ago we were traveling in Arizona. One of our favorite places, and our home for five years, is Sedona. In this image, you see the magical red rock formations that we never took for granted while living there. This is a view from atop Airport Mesa with West Sedona nestled beneath the rock formations. It was a beautifully cloudy day and we did get rained on while up there. But the view was magnificent and the clouds added so much to the image. Timing, luck and patience are the good friends of photographers.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF17-40mm f/4L lens and a polarizing filter, at 1/90 sec at f/16, ISO 200 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film.
And to think we used to see this – with a slightly different angle – every day from our living room windows! Love those clouds, dramatic photo . . . thanks!
One of my favorite places in the world.
One of our favorites too Kristi. We loved living there for five years, but we and you do live in another very beautiful place now as well.
For those of you who read my blog and are in the Carmel/Monterey area, you should visit Kristi’s store, Eco Carmel in Carmel. She has some of the most wonderful Natural, Green and Healthy items for sale. They range from potting materials, to eco-friendly paints to clothing and furniture (and more).

Nice one Marty. Sedona is such a beautiful place and the view from the airport is great!
Thanks Jason. Our trip was really filled with visiting old friends in Sedona and Tucson that I wasn’t able to make a time that I could have checked with you on getting a chance to shoot together. I do hope to be able to do that sometime. I loved the photo in your Blog post today. It’s one of your finest. I hope my readers will check it out:
Great view. Rock texture is impressive.
