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 image with amazing warm light and colours. The full moon makes it a very special shot and the two baloons are the icing on the cake.

the fabulous light glowing on the sandstone rocks is most attractive and with the rising moon and the hot air balloons well placed in the frame this is a fine piece of photography.
Best regards Les.

The rock formations look so impressive and their red colour is beautiful, but most of all I like the inclusion of the balloons and the large moon. Wonderful photo, thanks for sharing!

Dream of photographers: such a beautiful rocks, such a beautiful light and such a great moment with two balloons over the rocks and the moon as addition, compliments

I would gladly make a balloon flight over this amazing landscape and yet I doubt whether the balloonists could take an equally beautiful picture as this one.
Fantastic sandstone formations in attractive fiery red colour. Great contrast between the sunlit rocks and the parts in the shadow.
The full moon and the balloons are placed well on the picture.
Best regards, Paul

Splendid red colors of the vertical rocks due to the late sun, nice rounded shapes in the blue sky!

What a striking image - the icon of the American Southwest and the glowing red rocks when hit by the angle light.....
Indeed a fabulous location for photography with that conditions and the evening light certainly enhances the whole spectacle made even more awesome by the full moon rising and the balloons. Delightful catch, Congrats.

Morning with a moon, as the balloons taken-off over the magnificent Sedona-park with its red rocks scenery.
Maybe the shaded part would be lessen if a few minutes would past - but we can never wait - photographers have to take any minute possible.
Have a nice wsunday,
