Basically I take a lot of shots in Sedona because the raw beauty of the place compensates for my incompetence as a photographer. C+C appreciated.

The cactus (cacti?) in the foreground gives the photo an almost 3D look. Nice. My wife and I are thinking about traveling to the Sedona area next spring. Did you do much hiking while you were there or just picture taking?

It's all where you stand...you stood in a pretty darned good spot. Nicely done.

Thanks yall. I didn't hike this time up, but I am only 2 hours away in Phoenix so I have been up several times. There are some great trails in the area and the scenery is amazing. Be sure to try to come in early spring before it starts to heat up. Also make sure to take lots of water when you go out. You don't feel like you are getting dehydrated because you don't sweat much in the low humidity, but you are losing water quickly. Rent a jeep or 4x4 if you are flying in because some of the trailheads are only accessable by bad dirt roads. I would suggest checking out devil's arch, a natural bridge that everyone wants their picture standing on and also Oak Creek Canyon. Take the pink jeep tour...it's worth it. They take you to places you would otherwise never know about.

There are some good photo opportunities at Crescent Moon ranch where you can get shots of Cathedral Rock with Oak creek in the foreground. I will post some of my poor attempts to capture this beauty below. The hill leading up to the airport offers a great vista of the whole valley and an opportunity for a panorama. Unfortunately the valley is very built up so you will have to photoshop out hundreds of houses, art galleries and psychic/crystal shops to get a natural look. The airport loop trail is kind of cool. There is supposedly an energy vortex around there, but I didn't notice my battery icon going up. Finally, make sure you find a good spot for the sunset as they are amazing out here. Especially if you have some clouds in the sky.

There is quite a bit of hiking in sedona, but even more, and nicer hikes just north of sedona in oak creek canyon.

I hope you don't mind but since you mentioned Devil's Bridge I thought I would post a shot I took in april of 2011 when I was in the area. This is just to give people an idea of what to expect at the bridge. I didn't climb to the top to shoot the surounding area.

Nice shot! I didn't climb to the top either. I stupidly dragged my whole backpack full of gear along instead of just taking the camera and a lens. It was in the low 100s and I was dying by the time I got to the bottom part, so I found an nice shady area while the dude I was with climbed the rest of the way.

I did the same about the back pack. Temps were a little lower but I forgot water and I still needed some. This was one of my first shots on my trip and I learned very quickly about water. Your shots are very good, love the scenery in that area. I took a couple shots on the way up to Devil's Bridge.

The first shot is killer, but all are very nice.

Exceptional set, but I think I'll have to agree with the others, #1 is killer. Huge KUDOS to you.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Great shots. I was there on vacation 2 weeks ago...

You live in a beautiful area even if the temps are 104 in Phoenix this week.
