Weekend Reflection - Sedona Store Window

This is why Sedona, Arizona is one of the most beautiful places in the world. There is nowhere you can go in the city and not see beautiful scenery. I took this photo last week.

    Budd - Thanks Budd! It took mine away!

    Alex - It sure is. I prefer the northern part, but it's all amazing. A lot of desert...

  10. One of the prettiest towns anywhere and to think you could enjoy the same wonderful view looking forward and looking back.

  11. Oh, it's marvellous! I so want to visit Sedona one day!

  12. Great choice for the composition and particularly the color tones. This really works for me :) It's funny, because the one time I've been in Sedona in the last 10 years, neither of us liked it. Maybe it was the mood, but it felt overly commercial and without much soul - and yet the scenery is outstanding. How does it seem when you spend longer there? We were passing through. I guess it could feel different on a different day.

  25. Beautiful! I see Bell Rock as reflected. Sedona is always a sought out vacation place, so many things to do and see. I've been there once, and I will go back again!

  26. Looks awesome. I want to hit up Arizona some time. In the winter.

  27. I've never been to the Southwest, I really need to get there, this is amazing scenery!

  28. Hi Pat, Just stopped by to see where the wind blew you and you are in one of my personal favorite places. I'll bet the weather is absolutely perfect. Really cool reflection shot! You did a great job with the colors! Happy Trails...

  29. Sylvia - thanks Sylvia! I love it also. It's been raining here, but supposed to be warm for the next week.

    Gine - thanks! I appreciate the nice words.

    Malyss - I guess the window is a lot cleaner than ours at home! Thanks!

    EG - I agree! It's beautiful there. That view and more from anywhere in town.

    Karen - It sure is! I hope you get to visit. It's worth the effort.

    tapirgal - the colortones are just sitting there waiting for us. When the sun moves, the colors change. I'm surprised you didn't like it. There is just a small tourist portion of town. I think it's a totally spiritual and much more of an artists colony. I'm sure weekends during the summer are pretty crowded with tourists. We never go there then. I'd say about half the people there are either artists of some type, or hippy(ish). We spend most of our time out of town on the jeep trails or seeing natural things. So maybe you are partially right! Either way, it's the most beautiful place I've ever been to.

    Martha Z - It was just sitting there waiting for me. I agree about the colors. One of the things I like about Sedona is the requirement that buildings must also be painted in earth tones.

  30. Tim - Thanks so much Tim! It seems like at this point in my life, I look at everything as if I'm a camera. This one was hard to miss.

    Pearl - thanks Pearl! It's really alright...

    Kathryn D.D. - Thanks so much! Nature provides...

    Dianne - Thanks! I appreciate it.

    Ms. A - You are right. The thing I mostly see, is the ceiling tiles.

    Dianne - Thanks so much!

    Betty M - It is a magical place! One of the most beautiful I've ever seen.

    Leovi - Thanks Leovi! Everything was in place for a good shot!

    James - Thanks so much James! It was hard for me to screw this one up.

    Kay - Thanks! We usually go via Phoenix also, but this time we took a different route. It was still all desert!

  31. Belle - I mostly like the northern part because it gets SO DARN hot in the south. Thanks Belle!

    Phyllis - Thanks! I hope you get to check this one off of your list.

    Ann - You are so right. So much beauty and color. Thanks Ann.

    Ebie - Bell Rock, I belive you hit that one right on the head. I can't wait to go back.

    Allen Tesch - Thanks! The northern part is cooler than the south in the summer.

    Woody - Great scenery and good food also!

    Stickup Artist - Thanks buddy! The good stuff will be posted over the next couple of weeks. I really did very little. The lighting was awesome and the clean window did the rest! We're off to the Pismo Beach area in about 8 days.

  33. My niece just moved out there last week, and she said it is beautiful.

    Great reflection photo, Patrick!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great shot, the colors, scenery and reflections are all awesome! I live in AZ and haven't been to Sedona yet.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice shot Pat. Though I have been to AZ many many times I have never made it to Sedona. I have several friends who have been who always tell me how awesome it is.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Beautiful! I've never been there...must put it on my bucket list!

    ReplyDelete
  37. ...and that is one of the few places that I haven't visited. Now you have put it on my radar.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awesome Pat!!! Is it true that there is a different Vibe or Energy in that area?

    I've heard lot's about that gorgeous area!

    Thanks Buddy!

  39. Robyn - My pleasure! It is indeed breathtaking.

    becca - Thanks! It sure is.

    Mama Zen - Thanks so much!

    Icy BC - That's awesome! We have been talking about maybe moving there also.

    Diane AZ - Thanks! Sedona is the whole package! You must go!

    Chuck - It's worth the detour next time. I think it might be my favorite place. I'd miss the ocean, but I could live there.

    Marlene - Thanks! Put it near the top. It's one of those magic places.

    Jerry - Oh yeah! You've gotta see it at least once.

    John Mc - Thanks John! There is a huge sense of energy there. In fact, there are several energy vortexes (or vorticies) in and around the town. It seems the energy sprials up from underground. The trees in those areas are twisted in a corkscrew manner (or so they say). Anyway, it's a magical place and it's full of artists, hippie types and "new age" folks. I'm not saying I believe in all the vortex stuff, but there is an awesom "feel" to the place. The town is pretty small.

  40. Love your photo and I love Sedona. I keep wanting to write a post about the vortexes around town. Amazing place!

  41. Hey Pat! I've never been to Sedona, but it sure looks beautiful..amazing photo as usual!

  42. You inspire me to pack my case and head over there - yup, Arizona is definitely on my bucket-list now..!

  43. Sedona does look beautiful. I like the depth of this image. I've only seen Arizona from the air.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very interesting effect.

    Once again, very observant Pat.

  45. Pat, it obviously deserves another look. Thanks for your explanation. It may be that there was a strange mood among us that day. :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh wow. That is simply stunning. Well done!!
