|Sedona /sɨˈdoʊnə/ is a city that straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the northern Verde Valley region of the State of Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 10,031.|
Sedona's main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Sedona was named after Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of Theodore Carlton Schnebly, the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness. (From Wikipedia)

What is most striking is indeed those glowing orange mountains and the sense of hugeness you conveyed in your composition.
Hello Eleu, a beautifully timed shot with the sunlight just highlighting the sandstone formations, but with sufficient light for us to see the remainder of the landscape.
Hi Eleu, if you hadnt left the traces of civilisation at the bottom of the shot it could have been miles from anywhere..Beautiful afternoon light caught under the clouds.Fiona
The soft blue tones of the image have created an almost dreamy presentation, with the reflective sunlight enhancing the majestic mountain out crop.Well done MF.
