This is the local Sedona icon trophy photo. In my three visits, I’ve never been blessed with good light so I just make do with what’s available. Though the Cathedral Rocks are featured on every postcard rack in Arizona I still was surprised by how many photographers were out here even in the dreary late afternoon weather. One guy was shooting too close to the creek and fell in apparently because I saw him laying all his gear out to dry on a rock including his photo backpack and jacket. Even then he went back to shooting away soaking wet head to toe in cold weather as if he were in a race for time against some magical light about to fade. It’s interesting to see how other photographers work.
I got pretty close to some cascading water on the edge of the creek too but I went home dry at least.
