Red Rock & Sand~

Imbued by light,

and shadow.

Water reflects pastel hues.

Faces form in the rocks,

and vanish in the shadows.

Light is fleeting here,

defined by shadow.

Cheers to you from Sedona Arizona~

  1. I should’ve guessed this was Arizona, but I didn’t. I’m sure you’re having a lovely time — and what glorious scenery you’re capturing for us! I can’t get over that blue, blue sky!

  2. Beautiful country Cindy, the light does make it sing. Our central Australia has those red, pink hues everywhere and like your spot creates so many different colors just by waiting another 5 minutes. Great post 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  3. Don’t you love all the different landscapes our country has it makes me sad knowing how beautiful it is but would our fellow man here fight for it like is happening across the world.


    • Yes. I relate to how you feel. We are Americans. We all share a love for our beautiful country and a desire to protect her. We need to stop all the fighting with each other, and start focusing on all we have in common, in order to protect America the Beautiful დ

      • Our people have changed with many now living here with no skin in the game. No pride or allegiance to this country you can see it in the behavior to our flag and people. No history of this beautiful place resides in their hearts. A divided nation can be taken down from within. I for one am thankful for being older than 60 for sure.


  4. Beautiful pictures Cindy. They make me want to hop on a plane and head to Sedona! It seems like just yesterday my husband and I were there, and yet I realize we took our 1 year old, who is now 27! Oops!


    • The geography is just as stunning and mind boggling, but the crowds are a bit different. It is really crowded. One is still able to hike away from the crowds though which is wonderful. There are other gorgeous red rock places in the southwest where you can be alone in nature if you prefer a more solitary natural experience დ


  5. Sedona is so beautiful, love this set and your explanation of shadows and light.
    “Faces form in the rocks,” I read that line and immediately started to see faces, LOL!


  6. Beautiful, simply beautiful!
    And, the wings of that dragonfly are astounding! The entire being is gorgeous, but the photo you have here truly highlights the amazingness of wings – so strong and effective, yet so intricately delicate!
