We pulled off the road before we headed into the town of Sedona so I could capture the stormy skies over the majestic red rocks. As I set up my tripod, the sun started peeking out and patches of blue appeared in the sky. A beautiful Arizona fall day.
Last week I had an appointment in Flagstaff, so we decided to take the Oak Creek Canyon scenic route. Of course, we had to stop at the Bell Rock and the Courthouse parking areas to visit some of our favorite rock formations! It had been raining, so the red in the rocks was extra saturated. But, for some reason, I converted this image of the Courthouse to black and white, which I thought made a nice contrast with the clouds.

October is my favorite month! I look forward to wearing sweaters and jeans and down vests. I love when the temperatures drop and the leaves on the trees turn color. I especially love when pumpkins start appearing in the stores and pumpkin lattes are available again. And I still love Halloween!
In celebration of my favorite month, here is an October still life, edited two ways in Lightroom.
Here is another image from Huntington Beach a while back. This surfer spent a long time watching the waves and the other surfers- and never made it out there during the time I was watching. Was he judging the waves and waiting for better ones? Was he intimidated by the other surfers and hanging back? What was he thinking?
This is part of an unfinished and so far untitled series I’m putting together with the theme of being separate from the crowd.
