Mixed Results at Sedona

Another day of exhaustion. A work item came up – a magazine article that I had not planned to write – and I’m working when I’m supposed to be playing. Tough luck.

The only time left for it is sleep time and that is beginning to wear on me.

Anyway, we did find a couple of hours to go around to see some of the magnificent scenery around Sedona. Sad to say that the lighting was miserable. Gracie says that they have 300 days of sunshine here a year. We’ve had three grey days in a row. We’re going to the Grand Canyon tomorrow. I hope the sky cooperates.

Here are a few shots that I salvaged from the clutter.

Here’s a poorly lit Sedona panorama. One can see the possibilities if the weather would only cooperate:

I’ll look like that before long and people will be asking, “How does he stay alive?”
