Sedona Fall Color

We decided to get up early and take a trip to Sedona to see some of the fall color. After leaving the house in darkness, we made a stop at Starbucks, then headed toward the I-17.

View From Oak Creek Footbridge

This is one of my favorite places to capture images of Oak Creek. It’s from the footbridge across from Tlaquepaque. The photo below shows a little Sedona fall color (photo info: 13mm, 1/25 sec, f/10, ISO 200). In the distance is Steamboat and Wilson Mountain.

Midgley Bridge

Cannot go to Sedona without stopping to see Midgley Bridge (photo info: 26mm, 1/200 sec, f/13, ISO 200). Midgley Bridge is just north of Sedona on Highway 89A on the way to Oak Creek Canyon.

Well, it looks like we spent too much time at the above locations. By the time we got to West Fork, the parking lot was full. 🙁 So, we drove back toward Sedona looking for other interesting locations along Oak Creek Canyon. Below is one of the locations (photo info: 18mm, 1/20 sec, f/7.1, ISO 200). We were lucky enough to catch a fly fisherman in action.

Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village

One of the many works of art at Tlaquepaque (photo info: 210mm, 1/160 sec, f/6.3, ISO 100). This is one that caught my eye.

Well, all good things must come to a end, and this is the end of our post from our Sedona Fall Color trip. Adios!
