Alabaster snow on crimson rock is always a visual treat for Sedona residents and visitors, but from high over the surrounding Coconino Plateau the contrast is even more dramatic. On this day, a routine flight from Mesa to Flagstaff turned magical through a perfect sprinkling of low clouds and sun.
From aloft, the sight also plays up the altitude difference and resulting temperature spread between plateau and valley. Snow often garnishes the 7,000-foot-elevation plateau and associated pinnacles, but rarely the 4,800-foot town.
“Sedona Snow,” debuts in Limited Edition sizes of 27″x40″ and 24″x36″, and Open Editions of 16″x24″ and 10″x14″. Print prices range from $175 to $1500, with many options in between. See detailed pricing and ordering information.
Like all my Views from the Flying Carpet, this photograph was collaboratively tuned for print with Master Photographic Printer Richard Jackson, who prints for the world’s finest photographers. Each individual print is meticulously crafted, matted and/or framed, and packaged for shipping under Mr. Jackson’s supervision.

Along with this print’s unusual perspective of a magical place, fellow aviators will appreciate the distant glimpse of legendary Sedona Airport on its mesa overlooking town. The “aircraft carrier” runway is on pilot bucket lists around the globe. Hope you enjoy the view!
