Ready or not . . .
My friend, Joan, is staying with us, and we are having so much fun introducing her to Arizona. Saturday was spent touring Prescott- and shopping- and Sunday was the anticipated trip to Sedona and Jerome. I packed my camera bag with three lenses and an extra battery and planned to try some detail shots of the area, as I had photographed the places we were visiting several times. I had picked up a free Sedona guide at the airport, so was planning to bring that as well as the Arizona Highways photography guide I had recently purchased. I was READY!
As we drove into Sedona, I looked down at my feet and saw that yes indeed I had brought the guidebooks- but where was my camera? The answer became clear that I had left my camera bag on the kitchen counter. Oh. My. God.
So it became obvious that any pictures I might take would have to be shot with my iPhone. I relaxed, because I already have photos of Sedona. But when we pulled into our first stop, the Chapel of the Holy Cross, I noticed something that had been missing on our previous trips to Sedona- CLOUDS! Big billowy CLOUDS! And there was a moon- kind of taunting me up there. Darn.
So today’s post is all iPhone photos- including some Lensbaby shots, because at least I had that in my purse.
Here’s the view of Cathedral Rock from outside the chapel (notice the clouds. . .).
The chapel is awe-inspiring. After sitting quietly for awhile, I put the Lensbaby on the iPhone and tried some creative photography inside.
Afterward, I snapped another view of Cathedral Rock, before we went into town for lunch and some shopping.
