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.

Hello Eleu ,
What a gorgeous view of these amazing red rocks !
I like especially here the light , the sky , and the vegetation in the FG .
jacquest (17569) 2013-12-05 7:57
A beautiful view on those rocks with an interesting play of light and shadow. There is a good contrast between the red and the green and the distance gives a good deepness.

this is an excellently composed impression of this characteristic landscape! You took a great advantage of this gentle light that created such incredibly moody colors. My compliments!

This is a real Wild West Technicolor image. The rocks are incredible and the colors and light make this a really memorable photo. The ground between the rocks is surprisingly green, whic benefits the photo a lot.

molto bella questa tua Arizona nella quale verde e roccia si contendono lo spazio con un cielo ed una luce meravigliosa.
Eccellente la composizione che valorizza ulteriormente il paesaggio già spettacolare di suo.
Ottimi colori, contrasto e luminosità.
Ciao e buona serata

A very beautiful landscape and a very special topography. The warm light falls pleasantly over these "wild west" formations!
yquem46 (37558) 2013-12-05 9:09
Did not see those when I was in Sedona
Looks pretty much like the MV buttes but with more greenery at FG
An excellent light and a pleasant sky for this beautiful scenery
bravo, have a nice day

Hello Eleu ,
Looks like a greener version of Monument Valley in neighboring Utah. Wish I had had the time and money to visit both, although I did pack in quite a lot in my 4 weeks in the western USA. A superb high pov with good sharpness and warm cold color contrasts. Have a nicer than nice weekend!
PaulVDV (18764) 2013-12-05 11:17
What a vast and impressive landscape!
My first idea was also that the picture was taken in Monument Valley but apparently there are more places in the western US with such steep red rock formations. And here you have more variety in the colours thanks to the trees and the bushes.
Best regards, Paul

Fine Sedona panorama from elevated vantage point with the giant mesas dominating with shadows and immense clouds. The houses appear like miniature dots in this vast landscape.
macjake (48363) 2013-12-05 17:35
beautiful looking scene you've captured here!
who can resist this one right?
its a fine layerd photo too.
love the light striking the landscape with casting shadows from the clouds.
the only thing that could make the scene even better is a P-51 Mustang flying through the air :)

Hello Eleu - An impressive landscape with a wonderful atmosphere. Under the clouds and with the exceptional light the landscape has taken on a softness which we don't normally associate with this location. In all regards this is a very fine shot. Warm regards Rosemary

Magnifique paysage, extraordinaire cette vallée de rochers dans un jeu ombre et de lumière, très belle présentation

Ciao Eleu, fascinating landscape, superb sky, splendid light and wonderful pastel colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
ikeharel (47038) 2013-12-06 8:32
A fantastic landscape scenery, magnificent bature, Eleu.
Mist and long shadows gave a fabulous texture to the valley and trough between the monumental-rocks formation.
Light also enhanced the curves of those rocks.
An impressive taken shot.

What a great landscape...
Cette couleur orange va décidément très bien avec le vert.
nikkitta (10482) 2013-12-06 12:26
Yesterday night I watched Bad Breaking a great serie and the landscape was very similar, turned in New Mexico
An impresive landscape well composed with the three orange forms or mountains catching the last ? rays of sun
Thanks for the informative note

Beautiful capture of this strange but typical landscape of Arizona.
Good pov and good layout.

Cloudy sky creates a perfect background for this beatiful scenery.
TFS and have a nice weekend

This is the classic southwestern scene, one that I could see over and over without ever getting tired. Excellent colors, DOF and skillful composition.
kwekwekan (866) 2013-12-10 11:34
Great picture of a very beautiful landscape. The amount of greenery - not something I would readily associate with the American Southwest - really adds a lot of interest to the photo.
abmdsudi (35378) 2013-12-10 20:06
This is simply amazing nature beauty, what wonderful moment you've certainly captured the glow beautifully particularly I love warm light catching of the textures on the red rocks. The contrast in the colours and the sculptured formation is totally amazing at late hour of the day. Inclusion of foliage in the fg and misty distance just add that extra dimension and perspective, I really enjoy the sense of space and great distance effect. A really clean shot, a feast to the eyes no doubt and so well composed, and
the fantastic clouds finish off delightfully. Congrats
fotka (2811) 2013-12-13 4:35
Great landscape photography with beautiful red-rock formations. Photo is nicely composed almost like a panoramic shot and well done colors, light and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend,
adores (32204) 2013-12-18 14:18
A fantastic area and a very good pov! The landscape seems endless from here and the sunlight passing through the clouds is magical. A good shot, with good dof and colours!
