Sharing Photography~

Favorite thing What was neat about this trip was my oldest wanted to take some of his own photographs and he did a wonderful job of it. I have many different cameras, so I gave him one to use. About the only thing I didn't like is he would get to close to the edge at times. So I had to keep the eye on him. Still, he has a wonderful time and was very proud of the pictures he took.

For the Best Sunset Photos...

Favorite thing Believe it or not, locals told us that the best place to take sunset photos is at the airport Mesa. It's an easy place to access. For such an easy access, the views are spectacular. The climb takes about five minutes. In cooler weather, be sure to wear a jacket or, better yet, bring a blanket because after the sun sets, the wind picks up.

This is also the place to see the sun rise. So, if you are an early riser, view the vivid colors as the sun creeps up in the sky. In the morning, it's fun to go to the Coffee Pot restaurant to try one of their 101 omelets.

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing, and, for heaven's sake, don't forget your camera!

Directions:

At Sedona (Burger King) "Y" turn left onto West 89A; go to airport Road and when you see it, turn left. Drive a few miles, being alert for the dirt parking lot. Pull off to the left and hike the short trail to the Mesa.

Fondest memory I probably should not be giving away this "secret" because then a crowd will suddenly appear. Oh, well, it's better to share information about these wonderful...sunsets.

Those Red, Red, Rocks

Favorite thing The red color of the rocks is created from layers of Hematite that "rust" when exposed to water or snow.

You will find that you can get the best color in your photos if you take pictures in the early morning, or late afternoon into evening, othewise, colors tend to look brown or washed out. I found color enhancing software handy for my midday shots.

Take Color Photos

Favorite thing I made the mistake of experimenting with B&W photos in Sedona. Sedona is the place where you want to have plenty of color film on hand. The bright, vivid colors of the rocks set againist the blue skies can only be accurately reflected in color photography. Of course if you think you are the next Ansel Adams, go black & white by all means.

For you photographers, make...

Favorite thing For you photographers, make sure you bring out the cameras on a 'partly cloudy' day, as the sun/shadows change the appearance of Sedona with every moment. And be sure to have your cameras set-up for sunset... Awesome! But most of all, see Sedona in the winter... with some sprinkling of snow on the red rocks... it is unforgettable.
