Living in Ohio, going to the sea requires some significant travel. However, our latest trip was to Sedona, AZ, and we learned that the sea helped to create the beauty of the red rocks.
Each of the different layers represented in the rocks owes much of its composition to the process in which the sea receded millions of years ago. For example, the third layer from the top, the Moenkopi Formation, consists of siltstone and mudstone deposited in what were once tidal flat areas.

I hope that everyone has a great week!
We recently visited the Red Rocks of Sedona and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. We have many wonderful memories from this trip, including an evening at Sunset Point in Sedona. We shared this evening with many others, all who seemed to have no care in the world other than to enjoy the beauty of a evening sunset.
It’s funny how we can be so stressed out, and yet an event that we ignore each night in our home towns can create such a carefree attitude when visiting another location.
I hope you have a great week – may it be as carefree as sitting and watching the sunset.
It seems that as our sunset gets closer, time speeds up exponentially. Daily life and all that comes with it can become blurred. And, if we don’t slow down and take the time to enjoy life, perhaps this image foreshadows how we will experience life.
Hi everyone. Apologies for my absence – I hope things are well with you! The photography class and work have been more than I imagined…
Below is this week’s response to the weekly photo challenge:
It was taken at a local metro park, early in the morning as the sun was starting to rise. Sitting on the deck, listening to the wildlife, and enjoying a cup of coffee – the golden hour indeed!
