… the NW slope of Mingus mountain has some of the most beautifully eroded slopes I have seen. I took this photo last Friday at about 5PM and with the sun setting at about 5:25P the shadows were growing and accentuating the eroded lines. The basic direction you are looking is to the N; just below the horizon on the left is Bill Williams Mountain and above and to the right of it you can see the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, then further to the right Sitgreaves Mountain, further to the right is Kendrick Peak and finally the San Francisco peaks and Mt. Elden. Just above the middle running across the image is the end of the Colorado Plateau and below the right side are the Red Rocks of Sedona … Sycamore Canyon is below the SF peaks and is the opening in the plateau line … kinda one of those go on forever photos.
A fun and full day today … two flights this morning … a little shopping for food … wheat grass for One … Latte with “not just any John” and a trip down to the good Dr. Butman who assures me that I will continue to breathe for a while … a stop at the ponds for a shoot and didn’t get much worth bragging about but it was fun … large sugar free vanilla latte from Wildflower and a pleasant ride home and on into the evening.
Have a terrific day today and share a smile or three. Another fun and busy one on tap as I move into my stuff.
The green of all the fields is mine, the stars, the night, the wind at play,
A peaceful heart, while quietly
I go my way
