Red Rocks


sedonafromcar-0004

We drove through Sedona, AZ on the way back from the Grand Canyon (pictures of that to come when I can think of the words to describe it first). It's an area of the mountains filled with red rocks and we barely had time to stop and look around. Although we drove through in the early afternoon, it must be spectacular at sunset.

I was surprised how these pictures turned out, given the one above was from the highway and the one below was during midday, not the best times to take landscape pictures. I had rented a 10-12mm lens for the trip which was great for landscape shots like these, and tried it out with a polarizer, which cut out any glare and made the skies so blue they almost look fake.
