Sedona Landscapes

It’s hard to believe we’ve been in beautiful Sedona, Arizona now for 5 days . . How time flies when you’re having fun!

We try to come to Sedona once or twice a year, and always enjoy both the scenery and the climate here. This year particularly, coming here has given us a nice reprieve from what has seemed like an especially long winter farther north.

Sedona and the surrounding area are some of Lee’s favorite places to photograph, so of course, one of his main goals when we come here is to add to his repertoire of fine landscape photographic images. And I generally tag along with him on his quest for photo opportunities, to keep him company, and to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local countryside.

Lee’s photography ventures are usually around late afternoon and sunset, when the “light” is more interesting and the longer shadows add more contrast to one’s photos. A couple of days ago, we took a drive out to Long Canyon, an area a few miles north and west of Uptown Sedona, so Lee could capture some late afternoon images.

While he was setting up and conducting his own “photo shoot”, I wandered about and took a few snapshots of my own. I’d like to share these with you, since there are such incredibly beautiful landscapes around here . . . .

Here's the master photographer!

And his loyal companion . . .

As many times as we've been to Sedona, I never cease to be amazed at the beauty and grace of this area of the country.

In my next Blog Post, I hope to show you a little of Uptown Sedona, so please stay tuned!
