Cathedral Rising


Our trip to Arizona over the Thanksgiving holiday was primarily to Sedona, midst the Red Rock formations.

Early Saturday morning we took a hot-air balloon ride and watched the sun rise over Cathedral Rock,
 one of the 7 purported vortex centers in the area.

It's amazing going up in a balloon Ginnie as you know I did the same, but not over stunning views like this. Looks like we are back in action.
Lovely shot Musketeer.smilesmile
Ginnie Hart: We'll never forget our experiences, Musketeer, will we!
This looks like a magical trip Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It was indeed, Bill. Thanks.
That must have been a wonderful experience Ginnie. Looks like a fantastic part of the world.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Janet. It's definitely worth seeing if ever you have the chance!

Absolutely great! The lighting, the fog, the Red rocks looking like castles, the atmospher- Ginnie, your pic makes my day! It reminds me of one of my most impressive sun rise mornings- on the Moses Mountain/ Sinai after the ascension in the night- and then the slowly glowing sunrise...- such moments and such colours... you'll never never forget!
Ginnie Hart: I love your comparison to Mount Sinai, Philine. Now I'll never see this formation in the same way again!
Magical atmosphere Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It was indeed magical, Albert. Thank you.

Beautifully layered...more complex than a cake...and, if you munch off the top 50% then the remaining "cake" is still very beautiful.

Delicious!
Ginnie Hart: You're right, Ray. From one degree of glory to another!

amazing. i just love the clouds in the lower part of the frame; makes the rocks towering above seem so immense.
Ginnie Hart: Those rocks really ARE immense, David. I'm so glad you can tell. Thanks.

Yes, you are right: "Cathedral Rising" - the metaphor is fitting and nature might be for many persons that place where they can find God or have religious experiences!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Philine. Exactly. It was given that name for a reason.

This is just wonderful, the tones are ontzettend mooi, this must have been so soulful and magical.
(just noticed the 'smileys' don't work and I am not able to sign in)
Ginnie Hart: It was truly unbelievable, mijn lieve vriend. One day you will experience the feeling of a hot-air balloon.

I had commented earlier on this image, looks like the comment didn't register for some reason.

This is an awesome image Ginnie. I like the way you have captured the wavy slopes of all the 3 mountains
Ginnie Hart: I'll never forget it, Thomas.

(BTW, you may know that we were having server problems at this site for several days over last weekend. It was a mess, but now it appears to be back to normal. Thanks for trying again!)

Very painterly- Davide?
Ginnie Hart: Hmmmm. I had to Google Davide to find out who you mean, Jamoula. I'm still not sure, but I take it as a compliment. Thank you kindly.
This landscape is really eyecatching. I like how the foreground is strong and then how the mid ground and background fade. I think the mist looks really nice too.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Lee, for stopping by again!
