Sedona Star

Climbing around on rocks is the thing to do in Sedona. The timing for this hike was perfect for me to get the sun right in the middle of Cathedral Rock. The bright light was a perfect path to follow to our destination.

In the Desert

Life in the desert can be hard. Keep it interesting by showing off your bright green colors whenever you can!

The Middle of the Rock

The hike up to the saddle of Cathedral Rock isn’t far, but it is way up above where you start. The vantage point isn’t expected until you pop out at the top, and get a nice look at the rock on each side of you and the view down below.

Southwest Sunset

I came to the Southwest on this trip to ski, but I stayed for the sunsets. This view with Pueblo Peak in the background was particularly spectacular, and absolutely better than the skiing!

Bighorn Sheep

I have a history of getting up close and personal with wildlife on what are supposed to be ski trips. When life doesn’t give you fresh snow you make the most of it and take wildlife photos! This bighorn sheep was hanging out above the Rio Grande on the rocks along the trail just waiting for us. He checked us out for awhile before making his way down the steep edge of the river out of sight.

Sedona Sunrise

After hiking the Grand Canyon the day before it was difficult to motivate for this sunrise shot. I was worried the sky would be covered in clouds, but I was lucky and there were just enough to make the sunrise even better.


The Stevenson

Call it the Stevenson Expressway, call it Interstate 55, but I call it a nice photo from the air. I was in Chicago and caught this view on my flight out. Of course I was hoping for a strange and unlikely route back across the city skyline from Midway, but that didn’t happen. Then I was hoping for some beautiful light from sunset that happened a few moments before this, but they turned the plane around and went back to the gate to pick up a passenger (honestly!) burning my precious time. In the end it all worked out, and I got some nice lighting in the sky and an interesting interchange below.
