Castles in the Air
This image perfectly captures the feeling of being in Sedona — it is wild, rugged, and beautiful all at the same time. The red weather-worn peaks of Castle Rock are beautifully contrasted by the gentle white clouds and colorful rainbow that reaches down to the monument. Courthouse Butte and Cathedral Rock watch on in the background.
This rare image of water in the desert was taken during Sedona's monsoon season. This picture inspires a sense of tranquility as the iconic Cathedral Rock glimpses its own reflection in a pond formed at the top of a red rock plateau.
Low desert Cholla is a common sight in the Southwest. In this beautiful image, Lawson captures another natural contrast between the green spiny cactus and the seasonal sunflowers that dance at its feet.
Horseshoe Bend is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Southwest. And it's no wonder why — the Colorado River makes a dramatic horseshoe shape around red rock cliffs, providing views that are simply breathtaking. This is a particularly special image as the popularity of this spot has marred this vantage point with safety elements that protect the rocks many admirers.
