Overlooking Oak Creek

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 5 March 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

Down in the valley flows Oak Creek, which passes through Sedona. We spotted that open meadow and hoped to get views of the creek from there.

I like the cactus as a close element. It makes a fine landscape shot that looks well focused from very close to infinity. Well done.

Oh yes, this very nice indeed...nice idea to grab that beaver tail (?) and use it for a foreground piece....the distant view of the valley is great!

We have not been to Sedona but your shots are making me really think I'd like to. ;-)

@B. Thomas: You'll enjoy it. There are lots of easy trails to hike that offer pretty nice views. Sedona is my wife's favorite place on earth.
