“Cathedral Sunset” – Sedona, AZ – Michael Wilson – Featured Photographer
I have been to Sedona, AZ several times with my family and camera in tow. Known for its red rocks, the scenery here does everything except disappoint. Michael captures the landscape perfectly. This photograph gives an entirely different perspective of Cathedral Rock from most other photographs of the area. If you go back to this photo (click here) you can see exactly where Michael is photographing from up on the rock formation. Once you have checked out both images then head on over http://Michael-Wilson.com for some more great images of his home state.
Here is Michael:
I live in Prescott, AZ which is about an hour and a half drive from Sedona. My wife and I drove to Sedona early one morning to take some sunrise photographs from the saddle on top of Cathedral Rock. I hiked up the mountain to shoot the sunrise, but the clouds were not cooperating with me. During the day in Sedona, the storm clouds were accumulating, so I went back again at sunset. It started lightly raining on my climb up the mountain, so I found a rock overhang to hide under until closer to sunset. When the sun was getting closer to peeking out from behind the clouds, I put some rain gear on my camera and started taking some shots. The rain finally let up just before the sun appeared. I took the protective cover off the camera and watched the sunlight spill out over the canyons below. There were beautiful views toward and away from sunset at the time. However, this photo was my personal favorite.
