… I love this shot of the Sedona Mittens … everything has a dusting or more of snow and the beautiful Arizona sky is poking through the large gaps between clouds in the north eastern sky. This is also the view that the pilot has as he leaves the run up area at the north end of Sedona’s airport as he enters runway 21, a 90 degree right turn and you accelerate down the runway and enter flight. No idea how many times I looked up canyon like this before taking off, but each time, the feelings of “this is my home” well up inside … and I will return.
Below is a photo of a 2nd year juvenile Bald Eagle leaving his perch as he too spreads his wings and enters flight … end of day is approaching and the light was magical … so was/is thee eagle. We were fortunate to get him and flying directly at us at eye level. I took this shot last Thursday near end of day, down at Lake Pleasant.
Hope your weekend was filled with joy and that it will spill over into the new week. Smile, keep breathing and be kind.
Though work bring naught of power
Spare me from want of common needs,
And give a share of manly health,
A few good friends of honest deeds;
And till death’s peaceful slumber nears
A life of undishonored years.
