1 Shot Wednesday: Winter Hike

Milly gets a running start.

I love winter hikes after a dusting. The air is crisp, the skies are brilliant, and the snow adds a dimension not seen on regular days during the year. This is Fay Canyon, Sedona.

  1. I love the white against the red rocks. Last winter after one of those serious snowstorms, I headed up to Sedona for photo-ops and really enjoyed it. Love this image. Do you have Milly full-time now?

    1. No. We have my older granddaughter full time now. She’s a gem. Milly moved with her mom to Sedona, so now we only see her once a week instead of every day (I was in charge of making lunch and getting her off to school on the bus.)

      1. I noticed πŸ™‚ Makes the image more cohesive, as the eye has something to go to and is then lead by Milly through the picture, where it then goes around the scenery and back to her. Nice!

  2. Looks like your photo found a great way to augment John Muir’s β€œOf all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt” … and surrounded by a dusting of snow πŸ™‚

    1. I feel that way everytime I go for a hike. Thanks very much for saying so. I’ve been very excited about the new documentary by Ken Burns and “The National Parks”. They feature a lot about Muir and his influence. I realized I’m truly at the core a Transcendentalist.
