We are staying in Camp Verde, Arizona. It is in a beautiful valley surrounded by small mountains. But… go a half hour north and you seem to be in a different world. The mountains, rocks and buttes of the Sedona area are spectacular. To answer my earlier question, “Yes, it lives up to its reputation.”
I took this photograph near sunset on Saturday on a pull-off on Upper Red Rock Loop Road in Sedona, Arizona. I used a Nikon Z5 camera using a NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens (1/500 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100, 70mm). I edited the image in Adobe Lightroom.
