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 Shot Wednesday: Clouds of Heaven

Heavenly Sunset

I took this photo of a recent sunset out in Sycamore Canyon Wilderness. The sky was endless. The breeze whispered stories I vaguely remember from my childhood. My last glance at the setting sun compelled me to remember dear ones who have passed before me. When I take my last breath, just over this horizon, this is the way to lost loves and departed family.

1 Shot Wednesday: A Cool Picture

Is it hot where you live? August is my least favorite month of the year. It’s the month one suffers through. In many places, it’s hot and humid (the steamy heat that coats and drains) or if you live in Arizona (except for Flagstaff), it’s that dry, blasting heat with three-digit temperatures. (100-120 F or 37/48c ) This photo is a visual cool down. I enjoy looking at photos out of season. This surprise snowfall happened on Christmas morning, 2016. We drove up to Jerome to get a view of the valley. Hang in there! Fall is fast approaching. 

The best Christmas present if you live in the desert.
