Storm Clouds and Sunset in Sedona

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 6 June 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

A classic desert storm sky mixed with sunset light allowed for this vibrant image shot near Airport Mesa in Sedona, Arizona. Most times in landscape photography, the light is what I am after. I simply added this dead snag as a foreground element to give the scene a sense of scale. I waited for the sun to lower in the sky, then placed it along an edge of the snag to create the sunstar. By using the snag, I created depth to this image and in turn made it hopefully more interesting. To see more of my landscape images or to learn about my workshops, please visit my website at
