Great images, Cindy. Reply Hi Michael 🙂 There’s a lot going on. Hard to capture the bridge and have it stand out among “everything”. Well put. Reply #3 is the best one Reply Hi, Allen 🙂 It was a sunny day–hard to find the depth. Thanks! Reply #4 is the best in terms of composition, but i like looking at the deep focus of #1 a bit more. Reply Hi Bill. I thought the same thing. The first one with the cacti blooming and clouds framing the canyon really had me patting myself on the back. I think that’s one I’ll frame and stick on a wall somewhere. 😉 Reply Number one works best for me, giving good foreground detail, and a view over the whole area too. Impressive countryside indeed, and very different to the rather sedate Norfolk landscapes that I am used to. Best wishes, Pete. Reply Hi, Pete! Don’t you dare downgrade the English landscape. I adore England. Sedona, however, does have a robust, grand beauty which makes my hobby of picture-taking a lot of fun. The Red Rocks are unique! 🙂 Number one is my favorite, too. We’ve had a lot of rain this spring which makes the prickly pear cactus sprout magnificent colors. Reply I still like our ‘sedate’ landscapes Cindy. If I want a taste of mountainous grandeur, I can always drive up to Scotland! Best wishes as always, Pete. Reply Yes, indeed. Nothing like those lochs and the wild coastline 🙂 Reply I prefer the one with the Bigfoot in it. No, seriously, for me it’s three. The people look so tiny and vulnerable compared to the scenery around them. Reply It’s impossible to express in pictures the space and size of the mountains. The people help put them in perspective. Thanks, John Reply I love the first one! Reply Hi Abbi! Thanks so much. I love the blossoms on the cacti with the clouds and the all the space of the canyon. 🙂 Reply I like all of them best. Great pictures 🙂 Reply Thank you, Rob. Reply Wow, stunning photographs, what a great adventure you must have had! Like all the pictures, such incredible scenery! Reply Thank you, Paul. It was a perfect day. I’m stiff and sore today. It was a four mile hike with vertical climb in some places. Reply These are breathtaking, Cindy! You live in such a magnificent place of raw beauty. If I was forced to choose just one, it would be the first. I love the scope of foreground, background and the way the sky has interacted with both the top of the picture as well as the bottom (the shadows of clouds). Gorgeous! Reply Yay, that’s my favorite, too. Your eye begins at the bottom and rises up to the clouds. Everything was lush and prolific in the high desert yesterday. Thank you 🙂 Reply How colorful! Very beautiful. Reply Ta, Kate! It was hard to select only five shots. I can’t capture the majesty, but it’s fun to try. 🙂 Reply I’d vote for number one, although #3 was a close second. I love the yellow flowers in the first, though. I always like a photo with a foreground and background. Reply Welcome, Brenda! Thank you for your vote ;). I liked one and three best, too. Only if you click on #2,4 do you get a hint of the space. So hard in landscape shots! Have a great day 🙂 Reply 2 and 4 might be best enlarged a lot. On my screen the space is lost by the size, which is too small. They look beautiful, but not as vast as they should, if that makes sense. Reply Hi, Cindy: You’ve still have great photographic eyes! I like the shot under the branch of the Joshua tree. It’s busy, but not too busy. And a true treat for the eyes. The Cacti in the foreground shot is very nice, too. See if you can find some Kodak B&W film and give Ansel Adams a run for his money! Reply Hi, Kevin! Ha! I love Ansel Adams. I should take down my old SLR and see if I remember how to develop film the old fashioned way 😉 Reply Wow, beautiful! I like all of them 🙂 Reply Welcome! Thanks very much. Reply Guessing the hike was a ‘Mother’s Day’ special. I think I like the first one the best. Though they are all equally great. Reply Although if pressed, I would vote for #1; but all 5 are exquisite. Reply Thanks, Don! It’s hard to capture a photgraph of a canyon. I should know better than to try, but I just want to take all the space home with me. Reply I’ve never been to Arizona before. I would love to go sometime. These pictures make me want to go even more now! Reply When you say AZ, most people think just Phoenix. If you go north 90 minutes, you are in a completely different elevation, coolness, green and the lovely red rocks of Sedona. At the northern end is Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. It’s a diverse state. Hope you make it some day! Reply I ♥ comments. Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
