… and we’ll start this off with the highest place in Arizona, Humphreys Peak at 12,637 feet above sea level. This was shot on a beautiful August day and there are quite a few people who are scattered over the top of the peak having made the climb … the trail to the top goes off to the right just below the ridgeline. Just beyond the peak you are looking down into the caldera also known as the inner basin and I think the peak upper right is Doyle Peak. US 89 is the road that runs more or less across the upper part of the photo … Lockett Meadow is down hill from above Humphreys Peak.
For the low we’ll go with a reflection on Watkins Lake in Prescott. Watkins is one of the most beautiful lakes you will find anywhere with massive granite formations surrounding portions of the lake and coming up out of the water off shore too. I’m hoping that the lake level will be rising soon so that we can get back out on it. Phenomenal wildlife shooting too.
Lots of work today on the presentation which will be at the Mary Fisher Theater in West Sedona on September 10th … 4PM. Pat doesn’t have the information up on their website yet,
but look for it by next week. Michele will be there with Finley, my favorite American Kestrel and working on another surprise. It will be “An Evening With Ted” exploring the beauty of Sedona and Northern Arizona from the air, ground and water along with some fabulous wildlife shots. Look forward to seeing you there.
Into the new day, but first a break for a little rest. Have a beautiful day, keep breathing and make the day count! Only you can do it!

In addition to sales of photographs already taken Ted does special shoots for patrons on request and also does air-to-air photography for those who want photographs of their airplanes in flight. All special photographic sessions are billed on an hourly basis.
Ted also does one-on-one workshops for those interested in learning the techniques he uses. By special arrangement Ted will do one-on-one aerial photography workshops which will include actual photo sessions in the air.
