And More Red

I found this old postcard of Cathedral Rock while we were in Sedona last week so I scanned it. Okay, not really, but you probably knew that. It’s another of my old postcard creations, using texture and rounded edges, that I find so entertaining. Okay, here are a few more Sedona pics. I have the feeling that they sort of all look the same to any viewer after awhile so, after this post, I’ll take a little Sedona break before I post any more.

This is Courthouse Butte below.

Can you see the Eagle Rock above? Here it is, closer, naturally-occurring:

The clouds did cooperate that day.

See the rock formations on the right-hand side of the above photo?

Here they are, in the middle, a little larger. And here they are, below, closer-up.

The two large ones, together, are called the Two Sisters. The one to the left of those is Madonna and Child.

I could never get tired of looking at all of the red rocks…I think. But you might be so we will revisit Sedona a little later.

Well, okay, one more…

Update: This post was Freshly Pressed on 9.26.11! Thank you, WordPress.

  1. It’s really good to see photos of the red rocks, Candace! Is Slide Rock still there and are people still allowed to use it?

  2. I’m enjoying your Sedona pics! I was there with my grandparents; but I was just a little kid and didn’t appreciate it as much as I would now.

    Gorgeous!

  3. I enjoyed your series featuring the red rock of Sedona. I liked your near and far shots of some of the features. Nicely done. Have a great rest of the weekend.

  4. Magnificent landscapes and amazing compositions with the clouded skies! Beautiful!

  5. what a stunning series here .. color and natural texture!

  6. That looks like the same pink evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa) that we have in central Texas. Do you know if that’s what yours is?

  60. Thank you, everyone, for all your views and comments. It was very exciting to get the added attention. I appreciate it.

  61. Great photos! I love Sedona – a very special place.

  62. Went to Moab, Utah in 2010, beautiful color in the southwest. Really want to go back there sometime soon.

  63. I especially like your last paragraph – and I did start a blog – two in fact – just a few months ago! I always write letters to my children at Christmas – sometimes more often, but at least once a year. They know their letters will be in their stockings! Probably wouldn’t do anything you said not to – just a little bit inhibited! But that’s just me. Congratulations on being freshly pressed!
