Sedona /sɨˈdoʊnə/ is a city that straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the northern Verde Valley region of the U.S. state of Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 10,031. Sedona's main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails. Sedona was named after Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of Theodore Carlton Schnebly, the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness.

Magical Sedona scene, because instead of its famous red rock country, a hot air balloon floating in front of a full moon.
Good timing and well executed,

Another title could have been "Fly me to the moon"! A very good picture, apparently taken at the very right moment. A nice colour harmony between the balloon and the rocks below.

Outstanding composition, excellent photo. You should name it "Returning from the Moon". I like that you have also included the part of red rocks. Excellent photo work, well done.

your idea and execution of the scene are simply great!
The balloon against the Moon and the Arizona´s rocks in the FG make the composition truly spectacular!
Beautiful and atmospheric shot!
Have a nice day

A very creative composition of a unique and magical moment with an imaginary line between the mountain and the moon followed by the balloon.
