Beautiful Sedona, Arizona is often referred to as Red Rock Country

The sandstone formations glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. As multi-hued rocks jut upward from the desert floor, they appear to be reaching for the sky. Sedona is popular for its history, nature, archaeology, art and for the many gorgeous scenic drives that can be taken from there.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Looking Up At Things

I spend a lot of time looking up at things. More often than not, I enjoy what I find there! Whether it’s the beauty of sky, clouds and cliffs, an ancient city wall in Cesky Krumlov, a Cathedral in Prague, the chapel windows at Hampton Court Palace, a tower in Auckland, a sculpture in Arizona, a storm brewing in London, or the light fixture on my bathroom ceiling, there is much to appreciate by looking up!

“Meaningful” Vibrant Colors – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

While I understand the negative impact balloons have on our environment, it doesn’t stop me from loving these photos! The Hospice organization I volunteer for used to sponsor an event every year where family members could attach a note to a balloon and send it into the heavens for the loved ones they had lost. It was such a beautiful, healing moment when the balloons were released in unison! As the organization strives to find a memorial event equally as meaningful, but more Eco-friendly; for me anyway, nothing seems to hold the sentiment that this one did. I miss it!
