Photo Of The Week: Winter In Sedona
If you’re a photographer traveling to the United States you have to include Sedona in Arizona on your to-do list. It is especially breathtaking in winter. I have been twice already and I plan to visit again in the next year or two. ‘Winter In Sedona’ was taken from a lookout point on the side of Dry Creek Road. It really was quite difficult to capture as there was a lot of bright cloud around surrounding the mountains and red rock. I love this photograph because it captures the wild and majestic Sedona landscape more that any of my other images.
Winter In Sedona – Cold, Wet and Wonderful
If you think the scenery in ‘Winter In Sedona’ is beautiful imagine seeing it in person. Standing in this particular location I could turn 360° and enjoy amazing red rock mountains all around. I was so in awe of this amazing place that I nearly forgot about how cold and wet I was. My years as a tour guide has taught me to prepare for the elements, but lets face it, you don’t get this weather in outback Australia.
James on the other hand was not prepared for the cold and spent most of the time shivering. At one stage he retreated to the car and put the heater on. After thawing out he joined me and we photographed what we could until the sun went down.
We were only in Sedona for two days and I am so happy that it snowed while we were there. We worked hard, nearly froze to death and had one of the best days of our lives.
