Sedona and the red rocks..

May 01, 2012  •  2 Comments

If you have ever been to Arizona and been to Phoenix, there should be no excuse for not having been to Sedona as well.

Sedona is a a magical place that carries a long history of being a place where people go to find peace and inspiration. It's a place that really leaves first time visitors wondering if they landed in another planet or what.. whether you get there driving or flying in, the first view of Sedona is magnificent. Depending on the time of day the colors of the mountains may seem from another planet.  There is a predominance of reds on all the rocks and surrounding mountain peaks that really captivates the viewers as it takes on the background. Here's where landscape photographers must really get incredible shots. Depending on the time of day, the scene provides a different set of colors to look at.  As the Sun moves from East to West and it gets closer to sunset, the shadows are cast in such concert of shapes along the boulders and mountains. It's like a symphony of light and colors.   

I was recently there in Sedona shooting a favorite AZ family of mine: The Harringtons.  I was lucky to have them agree to a shoot in Sedona so that I could bring out the natural backdrops into these frames.  

These are just some samples of the views I was able to capture.  I will say that Megan and her younger sister Maranda were the most fab models. They are so beautiful that shooting them was mistake-proof (everything you shoot with them comes out great!).  :-)

Of course with such incredible backdrops pictures look like these mountains are  painted in the background.

And later in the day.. near sunset the colors turn into a brighter red..

And also you find some interesting contrasts in flora.

Jorge, you are a master at your craft. Of course the girls and the backdrop were flawless to begin with but your vision and photography skills are amazing. We are so lucky to have you in Arizona for a while and we loved working with you. Thank you so very much.
