There are a million places in Sedona
where you can watch the sun rise.

Some are tourist destinations;
others, you discover on your own.

This one is only visible when heading
south, out of town.

With no cars on the road in the wee morning
hours, I painted as a soft crescendo of light
preceded the sun's first peek over the mesa.
The first glow of light from the east was
mirrored back by a red rock curve in the west.

Shadows from the surrounding plateaus
framed it in such a dramatic way; and, for that
one moment, there was peace in the world.
