5 Shots: Monsoon Sunset

This is the best time of year for ascending to the plateau for 360 views of Mingus Mountain to the west and the Sedona Redrocks to the east. Fire, foil dinner, wine, and stars. The perfect Saturday night. Which one do you like best?

    1. Thanks, Pete. Poor Bear. His health has turned for the worse in the last month. He has bad arthritis in his back. We had to wrap him up in a blanket to lift him in and out of the back of the SUV. He has always been happiest out doors in the wild with us.

      1. Seems like it this year. Been a very rainy Summer. Usually we have great sunshine. Down East in Nova Scotia they are getting hammered by that hurricane right now though.


  1. For me, it’s the Bear and the Red Rocks. I like the contrast of the fire caught flaring, a reclining dog and the ‘wild west’ stretching out down and away in the distance.


    1. Thanks, John. Yes, we are very fortunate. We kind of cheat. We live on the outskirts of Sedona and avoid the expenses and crowding of tourists but we have access to the beauty without the crowds from across the valley. Thanks!

    1. Bear is always photogenic. I enjoy taking landscape shots (obviously) but people seem to like it when there’s something “alive” in the shot, experiencing the landscape. It never occurs to me to include myself or others or what we are doing. Anyway, thanks for commenting, John. How is your book coming along? How will you be publishing? Do you have a small press picking it up? Self-publishing?
