Visitors come from all over the world in autumn to see the color changes in Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona. The Westfork of Oak Creek is the most popular area to hike along the crimson cliffs that make the city of Sedona so famous. Located about 10 miles north of the city, there is a blaze of rainbow-colors in the month of October, and as you go deeper into the the canyon the reward is the reds of the sugar maples that line both banks of the Westfork. Each year, since 1980, Lou DeSerio hikes into this amazing area and finds new images to capture and convey the serenity and special colors that occur in a rare landscape of Arizona. This image was the result of a hunt that had persisted in his mind for over thirty years. In 2006 his vision came to reality when he came upon this scene. The intense red leaves had just fallen and graced the exposed roots of this maple seeking water along the banks of Westfork for many years. Captured on 4″x5″ film, every detail in both leaves and roots can be viewed, studied and enjoyed with each viewing, and the closer you bring your eyes to this fabulous print the more enjoyment there is.
