There are hills, and then there are mountains

You know I love my hills around here. Living at the bottom of a valley, we are surrounded by rolling hills that go on forever. They often end up in my photos.

In the morningIn the winterOr the summerOr any other other time

While we were in Arizona, we took a day trip to Sedona, and on Route 17, there is a rest area called Sunset Point. Our time was a little limited, so we took the most direct route and were thrilled to find this great spot to get out and take some photos.

And these?These are not just hills.Though that is certainly a valleyThese are mountains.Don’t get me wrong – I still love my little hills back home. But was just amazing to stand up here and look at this.

    Oh yes ma’am – I took them all. And thank you – so glad that you liked them. Glad that you got the book too – it really helped me a lot. Once you understand the relationship between aperture and shutter speed, it makes all the difference in the world.

  3. Just beautiful…a tale of two ranges;)

  4. These pictures are gorgeous, they look like something out of a magazine or book. You are very talented! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Kate – Isn’t it awesome how many people are taking fantastic photos these days? I don’t really feel like I measure up to most of the ones submitted over at PW’s though – those just keep getting better!
