  1. The magic of light and Nature beautiful captured, Jane! I love it! And i’m fully agree with the quote from William Wordsworth “Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.” 😀
    Warm regards, Heidi

  2. We were there just last week. One of my favorite places.

  3. More rock piles more beautiful than works of art. You must have had big torches which you used for the afternoon light capture

  4. WOW just breathtaking GF…..love the mystery in these shots!!

  5. Wow. Those rocks are almost luminous.

  6. I have only passed through Sedona during the day, and your wonderful photos, on this post and your previous one, have convinced me to return and stay there longer to see the sights at sunset and even in the evening. Will also look for the vortexes.Thank you, Jane, for sharing all these amazing sights!

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed them, Hien. I hope you get back there to spend some time. It’s beautiful and relaxing. We hiked to two vortexes but I can’t say I felt the vibes. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. So colorful and beautiful 🙂

  8. You have managed to make Sedona look even more beautiful than it is in reality!

  9. Happy to find you!!! Wonderful shots and quotes!!!

  10. Awesome images Jane. I love Sedona.

  11. Oh Sedona. Your photos capture the magic of this wondrous place.

  12. Theses are stunning, Jane, you’ve captured the glory of that landscape. The sixth image – wow! I bet you were excited! (Love the Proust quote!)

  13. Oh Jane! I need to visit Sedona and soon! Gorgeous images!

  14. What a glow, just gorgeous.

  15. A spectacular gallery of Sedona. I love the southwestern US landscape. Despite Snyder’s admonition to consider ourselves part of nature, this region always feels so alien to me.

  16. These photos really made my morning a little brighter. I love how you always seem to match your photos with the perfect quotes, always so positive and inspiring. Thank you Jane.

  17. Such majestic photos and views Jane, wonderful series. The Southwest has a palette of colors in nature rarely seen, and it is an inspiration to see this post representing such beauty. I’ve been to a couple parks in Utah (Arches and Canyonlands) and fell in love with the landscape and those I met along the way all said head further south 🙂 From your photos they were right. Love the quotes too. Cheers to a great spring!

    • Hi Randall, How nice to hear from you and I’m so glad you enjoyed my southwest travels. Thank you! The colors really are phenomenal — similar to Moab area but your friends may be right, it is pretty intense in Sedona, especially if you find a vortex. (I did not, but know where a couple are.) 🙂 Hope all is well with you and wishing you a great spring full of adventures.

  18. So beautiful, Jane, what an amazing place!

  19. the colours and light of afternoon light is amazing ~ beautiful series ~ smiles hedy 🙂

  20. Beautiful images Jane, fantastic detail and gorgeous rich colours

  21. So many amazing places to see.

  22. Afternoon Light is incredible. What an amazing view and photograph.

  23. That Red Rock glow brings back memories of our time in Colorado, Jane. These are stunning examples of the high desert and the colorful sunsets.

  24. 🙂 This looks absolutely lovely!
    HAPPY EASTER 🙂

  25. Stunning series, Jane, as always! Happy Easter to you and yours! Marcus

  26. Sedona is a magical place and you have harnessed the magic.

  27. Beautiful Jane. You’ve captured the magic of this special place

  28. These are so gorgeous, Jane, especially the afternoon light and storm clouds. You’re making me very excited for my southwestern road trip!

  29. These images are gorgeous Jane 🙂 You were truly “chasing the light” with these shots. Superb work.

  30. You captured the grandeur of Sedona. Did you look for the vortex?

  31. Such a beautiful array of evening and sunset shots, Jane. Wow, just wow. Those red rocks in Sedona do look like they are glowing a fiery hot red. What a magnificent piece of nature. Lovely cloud cover in all of these photos. They make for a dramatic sky at the end of the day.

    • Thank you so much, Mabel. We lucked out with some stormy weather for added drama. The lead photo is right out of the camera…there’s a moment when the rocks are fiery at sunset. I am hoping viewers don’t think it’s photoshopped! 🙂 Happy you enjoyed this series.

  32. Very impressive… and very beautiful! Especially love the afternoon light photo.

  33. What a stunning part of your country Jane and you have captured its beauty in these images

  34. Absolutely stunning shots, Jane. Thnks for sharing.

  35. Wow. Beautiful photographs. Loved them!

  36. So many beauties to choose from! I was especially drawn to Afternoon Light with that atmospheric backdrop, Jane, but you could loose yourself quite happily in any of these. 🙂 🙂 Happy Easter!
