The Climbing Daddy and I were lucky enough to get out of town for a couple of nights this weekend. We went up to Sedona, a town about two hours north of here. Sedona’s claim to fame is gorgeous red rock.
A storm was passing through, and we didn’t expect to be able to do any hiking. We were pleasantly surprised to get out for a bit before the rain hit.
We balanced hiking with photography by taking one hike without the Nikon and another one with. It’s important to have expectations set ahead of time—is this an exercise hike or a photography hike?
The skies are different in these photos, but they’re all taken in the same hour or so.
These two were taken back to back, looking to capture the water in the foreground and the amazing scenery behind. We can’t decide which we like more. Do you have an opinion?
The next day, we got snow. Those pics to come next week!
But before I go, here are a few from the first hike, taken with my phone.
While we were out, it started to rain. We ran back in (wasn’t expecting to do a trail run that day!) and waited it out under a ramada at the trail head. The rain stopped, and a rainbow appeared. (Also: I was extra-glad not to have the Nikon on the trail!)
