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.

A very interesting effect to see the balloons on each side of the moon! And a fantastic landscape below with these impressive rock formations and the sun. A beautiful picture!

very nice the warm sunset colours as falling on the red rocks make them even more effective and interesting.The presentation of the full moon as the colourul hot air balloons makes the image fantastic.

Fantastic moment superbly collected, Eleu.
halved by the shadows, and lit by morning golden tone, and well in great clarity - culminates here to a wonderful and impressive scenmery.
One remark though: I'd crop a bit from the left side. My humble opinion.

Eye catching view of Sedona's textured sandstone monoliths, with full moon rising and hot air balloons floating.

a rare and fascinating view that you captured and framed very skillfully. The rocks are so imposing and attractive for their shapes, textures and colours as well as for the suggestive play of light and shade on them. The huge full moon flanked by two elegant balloons in the sky offer another suggestive and delightful spectacle. You managed to render and combine the scenes in a wonderful way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

excellently composed image and nature,which is really one of a kind.
I like the way you used the light to create so amazing visual effect of the scene.Also smaller details like the Moon or these two balloons are perfect additions to make your composition so attractive.
Have a nice day

This is a magnificent photo. You managed a superb combinaton of full moon, balloons and this strangely shaped and colored rock, partly glowing from the late sunrays. A very good photo job.
