This is one of my favorite trails in Sedona, because there are so many options for compositions. However, many of the red-rock scenes are partially blocked by the surrounding trees and flora, which inspires me to explore angles which are not obviously presented. I have hiked this trail a few times in search of new compositions, and came across this view by accident, after hiking to the top of a small butte, located a short distance off the main trail. From this vantage point, the butte seen here, resembles a shark fin. Just after I shot here for the first time, Sedona experienced a rare large snow storm. I immediately knew that this was the spot I wanted to return to, so I could set up and capture a true red-rock winter image.
