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? Share this:TwitterMoreEmailGoogleFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

I love water shots, this one is my fave https://cindybruchman.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/dsc03025.jpg 😀 Reply Thanks, Ruth! Reply I don’t think there can be one favorite. Love all the shots! 🙂 Nature at its best! Reply Thank you, Mahesh! It was a perfect day and the pools were so pretty. Reply Is it usually that green? I’ve always pictured more brown. Reply 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. Reply 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. Reply 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. Reply My wife has similar settings on her fancy camera. But I have no idea how to use it either. 🙂 Reply 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 Reply I’m glad to remind you of beauty in the world and I’m blessed to live so close to you. Reply I love them all, but if I have to choose. This one Reply Thank you, Nuwansen! I liked the water sparkles and the liquid look to the rocks. Glad you liked it, too Reply 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 … Reply It’s a dream come true to live here. Thanks, J Reply 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. Reply Dan, oh, you should. Up my way is far prettier than the hot dust bowl of Phoenix 😉 . My way has green and trees and the red rocks are incomparable. Aren’t you from the UK? What part are you from? Reply I ♥ comments. Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
