The Coffee Pot


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


This particular formation is called The Coffee Pot...seriously!
So, for those of you who want color AND coffee, here it is!
(This was NOT taken from the hot-air balloon ride.)

And now you know why they're called the Red Rocks!

Enjoy your weekend coming up!

Certainly red and blue! Very striking although I must admit I thought red rooster when I opened the image ;o)
Ginnie Hart: I definitely see the red rooster, Mike, which would have been appropriate. It must have been the tall/long vertical that was the tipping point. smile

Wow that rock is very red
Ginnie Hart: And it's actually that red, Vintage. I had to even desaturate some of my images because it was too bright.

WOw! It really does look like a coffee post. Very cool rock formation..and the colors are spectacular!!!
Ginnie Hart: Once I knew what it was called, that's all I saw, Marcie. smile
You certainly get around, Ginnie! Weren't you just floating down the Rhine? I love the rich color in this...So different than the total white blanket of snow pouring down right now in Washington.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Yes, November was a rich month of travel, Patrushka. I feel so lucky!

Very not photo, It wasn't too long ago I was there =P
Ginnie Hart: Really? Then you know what this place looks like, Brian. Incredible!
Nice shot Ginnie. beautiful scenery.
Ginnie Hart: So good to see you again, Ade. I left a comment at your site but it didn't look like it took?

the landscape over there is simply amazing.. naming it a the coffee pot is really something.. smile nice shot..
Ginnie Hart: It did seem apropos, Rian. Once I knew the name, that's what I always saw.
It is quite spectacular Ginnie: the colours are so vivid!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Chris! The entire area was like this!

Those colours are just wonderful, yes I would love to have een kopje koffie met jou....wink
It indeed looks like a rooster too like Mike said.
Great composition here, the trees show it is a hot and dry country out there.
So different from The Netherlands.
Ginnie Hart: As long as the pot is full, Astrid, there's enough koffie here to last a lifetime...for everyone on SC! It is definitely a different terrain from Holland, meer dan je weet. There were so many rock formations but THIS one I had to choose for SC. smile

Coffee Pot ??? Okay !!!!

I thought it look like a Chook's head.
Ginnie Hart: Once you know what something is called, that's all you see from that point on, Brian! HA! It makes you think twice about what you call things.

Oh, Ginnie, I just come from Bill's blog and now a coffee pot- really funny all the nicknames the Americans give their nature collegues! - a nice remembrance of Nederlands kopje koffee... and yourshort coffee job -and an invitation to come back to Europe- a wonderful pic with wonderful intense colours!
Ginnie Hart: If they didn't give names, how would we know where to tell people to go for such-n-such! HA! But it does speak to what happens when we name something/body, Philine. We "stamp" them for life! This IS an invitation to come back to Europe. I gladly accept! smile
Thanks Ginnie, I have now got lots of colour and coffeesmile
Ginnie Hart: Just for you and Philine, Nigel. smile

What striking colours and rock formations. A very harmonious composition Ginnie.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ingrid. It is a place of harmony, to be honest!
beautiful red rock, so warm
Ginnie Hart: So fitting of the desert climate, Chantal!
you'd get a fair few cups out of one that size! Great colour Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I love how Philine connected your image today to mine, Bill. I never even thought of it till she mentioned it. And yes, enough koffie for us for the rest of our lives! smile

About the right size pot to feed my coffee habit, Ginnie.
Great shot.
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Ray. Enough to feed all of SC, I'm sure. smile
Wonderful Ginnie. Reminds me of Madagascar colours!
Ginnie Hart: I've never been to Madagascar, Richard, so I'll just trust you! smile

Oh Ginnie I really like this one. Not only did you capture the redness of the rocks - but the texture too! The green foreground is a bonus. Fantastic!!
Ginnie Hart: It really is an amazing place, Martie, isn't it. It sounds like you've been there?!

Ginnie Hart: Color for a change, David! smile Thanks.
Wonderful image Ginnie. I'd have loved to be there.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, you would have, Albert. It's really awesome.
Straight out of tourist guide book Ginnie, what a lovely photo. the contrast of the red rocks against the deep blue sky really works. Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Now you can see why this is a tourist hot-spot in our country, Brian! smile

Fantastic location for rock climbing ! I thought about starting a trip to the Red Rocks and the Yosemite Valley ... but ... no time, no money ;-) Thanks for sharing this beautiful view !
Ginnie Hart: I never thought about if there are rock climbers there, Carsten. Wow. That would be something!

Nicely framed by the trees Ginnie, looks a grand place to be.
Ginnie Hart: That's a lot of coffee to last us a long time, Les!
Interesting rock formations, really like the red colors. Could go for a coffee now. Beautiful capture Ginnie, like the framing with the trees.
Ginnie Hart: Enough coffee there to last us a lifetime, John. smile Thanks.

Is it me, or does the top look sort of like a rooster's head? Beautiful!

Wishing you a wonderful christmas, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: It's not just you, Mary, because a couple others mentioned the same thing. smile I see it, too.
great composed, I like red and blue colors in this shot ...

I see why it's called a coffee pot. It reminds me of the old timey percolators. I like whatever that is growing on the tree in the forefront too.
Ginnie Hart: Those old-timey percolators had their charm, Sherri, didn't they! The sound of them percolating suddenly brings a smile to my face. Thanks for the thought! smile

a wise bird looking overthere..the eternity
Ginnie Hart: Some do see the bird/rooster, Vera, and others see the coffee pot. Either makes a fine story, for sure. Thanks for commenting again.

LOL I see this pot would never be empty Ginniegringrin
Lovely image, mostly I love the red brick against the blue sky.
Stunning Musketeersmile
Ginnie Hart: It would NEVER be empty, Tracy, you're right. Glad to see you made it back safe-n-sound.
Wonderful colors! smile
Ginnie Hart: And that's exactly what they look like, José Angel. Gracias.
hehehehe ... yes, it's much like a similar Coffe pot. I love your imagination, Ginnie. Regards from Yogyakarta City, Indonesia.
Ginnie Hart: I didn't think up the name, Bram, so someone else had the imagination. But it sure is fun, isn't it! Thanks.
