Sedona Art

Here are a couple of PINK HOGS crying out for a place in your yard next to your pink flamingos. This image will have to hold you for a few days as I am off on yet another trip.

Sedona Art

We also visited Sedona where there are a large number of art galleries that display the wares of local artists. Today I will start a new series of the art that was outside the different galleries available for me to photograph. I don't know the title of this piece but I would call it "Puff the Magic Dragon".

Even the light fixtures were a work of art in this hotel as evidenced by this ceiling light.

Prescott Painted Fire Hydrants

Well I am back from another trip so I am now able to continue posting my picture of the day. Today's image will continue my Arizona trip. While in Prescott I found a collection of fire hydrants that were painted up as art. These are not working fire hydrants as they were lined up in front of a restaurant. Enjoy!

Double Rainbow

Here is a Double Rainbow that I shot in Arizona. Secondary rainbows are caused by a double reflection of sunlight inside the raindrops, and appear at an angle of 50–53°. As a result of the second reflection, the colors of a secondary rainbow are inverted compared to the primary bow, with blue on the outside and red on the inside. The secondary rainbow is fainter than the primary because more light escapes from two reflections compared to one and because the rainbow itself is spread over a greater area of the sky. The dark area of unlit sky lying between the primary and secondary bows is called Alexander's band, after Alexander of Aphrodisias who first described it.

This image will have to hold you for awhile as I am off on another trip :)
