1 Shot Wednesday

January 10, 2015

I was rummaging through a draw this morning and found a memory card. Sticking it in my computer, I uploaded over 800 pictures from a two month period in 2015. Isn’t it funny when you move to a new area, you are in a tourist mindset and take pictures of every bush, every corner of your surroundings? Now four years later, I hardly take 100 pictures a year of my corner of the world.

Here’s one of a Sedona rock formation. The family visited from out of state, and we took them out on a winter hike. Want perspective? Look closely at the bottom center of the photo, and you can see our friend who found a path of his own.

Five Shots: Oak Creek Golfing

I don’t take golfing seriously. Once upon a time I drove 200 yards, walked the course, and regularly shot 45 for 9 holes. Since I’m not that athlete anymore, I tend to do the following: drive the cart, work on my short game, listen to Leo Kottke, sip some beers, and marvel how green is the manicured grass. For me, it’s a relaxing way to wrap up a weekend afternoon.

Oak Creek Country Club, outside of Sedona, is an 18 hole golf course open to the public. It’s a Trent Jones Sr./Jr. design and rated 7th in the state. The best news is that it’s affordable. Would you believe me if I told you it’s only $25 after 3:00 p.m.? How’s your golf game?

Five Shots: Sedona Wilderness Campfire

Dusk in the Sedona Wilderness

A fun way to host family and friends is to take them to “our” plateau which overlooks the Sedona Wilderness Area. No tourists. Just space and a large campfire to listen to music and watch the stars multiply. Stare long enough into the embers and images appear. Here are five shots of the campfire:
