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?

The penultimate one is my favourite
Second to the last one. The golden belly. Nice pick and great word.
Thanks for sharing
Always a pleasure! It give the hobby a purpose. I like creating photo posts.

They are all gorgeous, but I like the last one best.
Hi Robin! Thanks for your vote.
Breathtaking, all of them!
Hi DP! Thanks for saying so. It’s easy this time of year to catch spectacular cloud formations. Makies the photographer’s job easy. 😉
Naturally, they are all lovely, especially the golden skies. But I have to go with Bear and the fire, because it looks very ‘Wild West’. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete. x
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.
My German Shepherd got the hip problems. We had to put him to sleep, aged 14. 😦
Bear is 10 but he’s hobbling a lot and his muzzle and eyes look old.
Thanks, Pit. I bet up in Alaska you’re seeing some lovely sunsets yourself. 🙂
Stop teasing me you rascal.
Just kidding. Keep it up Cindy!
Your neck of the woods is pretty fantastic! Do you have a monsoon season up in Canada?
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.
I heard on the news. I’m sorry to hear of it.
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.
Thank you, GP. That was it! A fine moment in my day.
They are all lovely, but I want to see a pic of the fire and foil dinner and wine!
Ha, ha. Okay, next time.
You live in such a spectacularly beautiful place…all of them are incredible but “thumbs” lays it all out there for you…
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!
I cannot pick. Each photo is stunning. I keep looking at them! 🙂 Thank you, Cindy.
Thanks, Jennie. I love it when the prime entertainment is the sky. What a show!
I do, too! Every day is a glorious show. 🙂
All of them are appealing. I liked the dog contemplating fire with those marvellous scenes in the background. 🙂
Thanks, Ian. In the past, he wouldn’t sit still due to sniffing and exploring. This time, he is indeed taking it easy.
For me, it has to be the one with the dog!
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?
Thumbs, for its pastel shades
Thank, you Derrick. They were roughly 16 kilometres away.
What a canvas!!!
I wish I could paint it. Instead, I point and shoot. I appreciate the comment, Keith.
As usual Cindy, all of your pictures here are simply beautiful 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
Thanks, John, I’m lucky to have at my disposal some breathtaking scenery in my back yard.
Goodnight sun… gorgeous!
Hi, Paul. Standing underneath it was humbling. A huge balloon above me.
Distended is my favourite!
Thank you, Abbi. The clouds this time of year are melodramatic.
Woah..this was my reaction when I saw these beautiful pictures. They are just gorgeous
You are kind!
