landscape image sedona arizonaMonsoon sunset in Sedona, Arizona from Sound Bites Grill. Red rock landscape image with cloud formations.

Great time of year for landscape capture in the southwest. Sedona, Arizona has great red rocks all year long but add in the cloud formations of the monsoon season at sunset and things really start to rock!

This landscape image was assembled from 2 in camera panoramas made with the Lumix GX7 with a 25mm 1.4 Leica Summilux lens. Then the 2 images were stitched together using Adobe Photoshop to get more of the clouds in with the red rocks.

FYI, I wasn’t thinking about making images when this started to occur. I was out to dinner with my wife Holly and things started to happen on the horizon and luckily before we left the house I had grabbed the GX7 “just in case”.  I’m finding that because of its small size I am keeping the camera with me more and more often. And, consequently I’m finding more and more photo opportunities unveiling themselves before me. I tried to do this with my former go-to camera but often found it too cumbersome so often left it behind and lamented not getting the shot when it jumped up in front of me.
