The hardest part of creating this short video was deciding what to leave out! Unlike any video project I’ve ever posted, this one actually has some video footage in it: from my iPhone (in horrible wind and weather) and 5Dmk2 (in a shaky helicopter). Even with advanced stabilization in post, the footage is, well, interesting! […]
Maybe because I grew up at sea level in flat country Florida, I just love experiencing big sky. I just wanted to celebrate this wide angle shot of Sedona, from the airport mesa vortex. It captures just a hint of the big sky in this gorgeous place.
I blogged before about the death-defying adventure that was shooting this pano. No, I’m not kidding. (Check out the post about the first attempt to shoot this pano.) A few hours later, after the wind seemed a little less ferocious but even colder, and even though the light was quickly fading, I decided to give […]
The official gallery of nearly 500 pictures from our recent trip to the Grand Canyon (southern rim), Flagstaff, Jerome, and Sedona!
Yes, as time has allowed, over the past few weeks, I’ve been busy working on my photos from our recent trip to northern Arizona—God’s country! [Update: The Northern Arizona, 2014, Gallery is now available at this link.] Here’s just a taste of what will soon be arriving here at tt.us. All of these are HDR […]
This morning we took the highly anticipated (because it had been scheduled for yesterday until “the incident”) helicopter tour of the Sedona area. I’ll be posting video later. Then we were off to Prescott and Prescott Valley. We returned to Sedona via Jerome. You know, I just don’t know what to say about Jerome. In the […]
Time for some crazy: a Pink Jeep Off-road Tour into U.S. Forest Service protected land. Started by a realtor as a gimmick to show potential clients the gorgeous wilderness of Sedona, the Pink Jeep Tours company has been around for over 50 years and has evolved solely into an off-road tour company in Sedona and […]
Today was the official reason we came out to northern Arizona, the Sedona Marathon and 10K. The course was brutal: some very intense hills, including a killer hill at the turn around point for the 10k. I thought it was going to kill me! (Oh! Wait. I didn’t run…) But Steve and a couple of […]
Morning Back at the Canyon I am just entranced by the Grad Canyon! Every time you look at it, the view is different, even in the very same place! And beyond that, it’s just so big, so crazy, insane big! The canyon actually looks fake! It looks like a big backdrop someone painted and hung […]
We met friends for breakfast in the hotel and then headed out the the Grand Canyon Visitors’ Center on the south rim near Tusayan. I asked the ranger what was a “must do” for someone who only had today in the park. He said to drive the Hermit Road and stop as often as desired […]
