Many Faces of the Thumb

The view we get from our living room window is of the rock formation called The Thumb. From our perspective, it looks like a thumb. From other angles, it may blend in with other formations surrounding it. But, here is a sequence of a number of transformations the Thumb may go through over time.

Typical view with a little stormy weather on the way

A typical sunset.

How about a little snow on The Thumb

Here is a sunset with the full moon rising....

Then the clouds on the horizon opened up and we got a glorious sunset...

Finally, on a day when storms rode through all day, we caught this sight at the end of the day.

You just never know what you are going to get for spectacular scenery from one moment to the next here in Sedona.


  1. What a neat series of pix. Amazing what a change in the light can do.

  2. Thx. If I painted the colors at sunset, they would look fake.
