Five Shots: Oak Creek, Sedona, AZ


Jim and I had a chance to get out and hike around Oak Creek just north of Sedona. Everything seemed green and white today. Here are five plus three shots:









I loved how the sun bleached out the rocks. Which one is your favorite?

    • Hi TB! We are down in the canyon and by water, it’s green. Sedona is cool because the rocks are red and so it’s very very beautiful. I live fifteen minutes away and it’s browner but a light green on the foothills. One hour south, and you are by Phoenix–that’s the brown part. North of me is Flagstaff which is very green. Bonanza style. I love it here.


  1. Number two. Hands down. The river/creek in the foreground and the mountain in the background create appealing depth. And then the trees on the right give the image an almost synchronized height. It’s just a beautiful shot.


    • Hi Josh! Thanks, my friend. Now if I could manipulate the apeture or shutter speed to compensate for the harsh bright day–the brightness made the rocks white which was awesome as well as bring out the sycamores. I know there’s a manual button on my fancy-dancy camera, but I have yet to veer far from automatic. Thanks, for your approval on #2. It was a great day.


  2. We stayed in Boynton Canyon then drove north along the Oak Creek road, A beautiful part of the world, these photos brought it back to life. A wonderful holiday. Thx. SD


  3. Very nice shots !
    Well .. i bin up Oak Creek at Sedona more than a couple of times. Splashed around, soaked my feet and had a swim too. Ne’r git tired uv it.
    Hope to go again some day …


  4. Stunning location Cindy. I was lucky enough to enjoy a three-week holiday in and around Phoenix a few years ago but never got to Sedona. These pics remind me how much I’d love to get back to Arizona.


    • Dan, oh, you should. Up my way is far prettier than the hot dust bowl of Phoenix πŸ˜‰ . My way has green and trees and the red rocks are incomparable. Aren’t you from the UK? What part are you from?
