This past January I was lucky enough to spend a week in Arizona visiting family and photographing some landscapes. You can’t help but be absorbed by the beauty and serenity of the desert. Everywhere the eye turns it seems like a postcard moment.
One day I drove north from Phoenix to Sedona to photograph the Red Rocks. These sandstone formations (over 300 million years old) appear to glow a bright orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. I tried to shoot as much as I could before sunset, when the colours really came out. Sedona is also home to many energy vortexes and I can honestly say you do feel something. When shooting Cathedral Rock below, I didn’t notice until a week later when I was processing the photo, and re-tracing my steps, that there was a crescent moon in the upper right corner; and that I was standing in Crescent Moon Park. Strange but true!
Here are some more photos:
