Sedona, Arizona and red rocks are like peanut butter in Reese's ... and I did take plenty of captures of the red rocks, but on this day when we arrived Oak Creek was running high and red from the recent rains.

Added the 9 Stop ND and CPL filters stacked here to get this view along the creek that did not need any red rocks. The clouds and the flowing water smoothed out with the reflection looked pretty cool I think.

A capture taken near sunset with rain falling onto my head (hat). Took quite a few captures like that on this trip with wet weather following us just about every day.

Did make for some nice clouds and skies though.

This capture was taken in Sedona at the base of Cathedral Rock, with moonlight there in the clouds and breaking dawn light filling in on the rocks.

Daytime capture of this iconic scene that we hear about ... and is amazing to see. Used the CPL filter here with the mid-day light.

While sunset or sunrise may make this look even better, it is great to see it under the daytime conditions I think. When we returned to the park later in the day for sunset, storms were all over the place ... hence never made it back to this particular spot. But the other parts of the park and those with the petrified wood are just as amazing to see ... and was quite the drama. Posts to come ;)

About two weeks before our trip, we had planned a couple days in Taos and also along a lake in New Mexico for one night. As there was not much else around that lake for Ms. K to check out I started to think another location for a night was in order. I noticed that between Taos and the Painted Desert that we were planning to visit there was Canyon de Chelly National Monument. A little research and I was quickly changing around our planned route and stays and included one night here.

Boy was I so very happy we did this. What a grand location this park is and the lands around it ... as well as the local Navajo Indians that we met there.

For sunrise as I was heading out in the dark, there was one major thunderstorm going on even there in the morning. I hiked out to one of the many canyon overlooks there and set my exposure for 30 seconds at the higher ISO in order to get some lightning captures.

The alignment of the near full moon lighting the canyon (the moon was to my back here and in clearer skies) helped as well. A fine alignment of light, storm, and scenery for me to have some fun in. It was also lucky that this storm was moving away from this location as the sunrise continued.
