Sun Kissed Rocks with Platypod Max and Bob Coates


Words and images by Bob Coates

In these images back behind Courthouse Butte in Sedona, Arizona, I was able to capture the sun kissed rocks as they were graced with the early morning light. Using the Platypod Max  was quick and easy. To get just a bit of height, I set the Max on a fencepost. The Benro head made it easy to level the Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera with the 12-100 f/4.0 lens. With that camera/lens combination, I was able to zoom in crop and capture the best part of the scene! Check it out below.
