North of Scottsdale lies the town of Sedona - famous for red rocks and (so I am reliably informed) numerous sites of "Earth Energy". While the rocks are very clearly red, the Earth Energy was less obvious. Our tour guide was clearly a believer - remarkably for me, I managed to hold my tongue!
What was beyond doubt, was that there was a change in the weather coming. The skies were as huge and wonderful as rocks they capped.
While shops on the main street were offering crystal cures and aura readings, the sky was putting on a display of real wonder. In the next 24 hours more rain fell than in the past year. When you look at the skies you can see why.
All of these shots are panorama crops from my wide angle lens - while not being straight out of the camera shots, I have done very little else to the pictures. The sky really did look like this!
Please click on the images to see larger versions - I think that it will be worth the effort!
The "speck" in the middle of the final image is a raven!
