Daily Photo Phix: My escape to the Southwest

Last September, my wife and I toured the American Southwest.  Our first stop was in Sedona AZ, home of iconic red rock mountains and where everyone is a cowboy, even a city slicker from New England.  I took hundreds of photos of the most beautiful sunsets and vistas, but one of my favorites is this one:

Outside the Southwest Inn at Sedona

Nikon D90, f/8, 1/250 sec, 33mm focal length

This setting was right by the front door of the Southwest Inn at Sedona, a charming inn where we spent a few nights.  From this wooden chair, preferably with your feet propped up on the footrest, you can experience the beauty of the area, the grandeur of the mountains, the warmth of the sun.

Here are the colors of the southwest, and the textures that mirror the rugged countenance of it’s people.  When the days are long and I’m in need of a mental getaway, this is where I go.                                      Posted by Ed

    Ah, Sedona. You capture the essence of Sedona in one photo Ed. Not sure how you did that, but I have been there and this photo is PERFECT for that place. Well done.

      Thanks Rodney. Sometimes you encounter a scene that encompasses everything about a place. Of course, that’s very subjective, but I’m glad you liked it. Ed
