Additional Monument Valley Images

Monument Valley Moonrise, 2000

Whenever I plan a shooting trip, or a workshop, I first check to see when there will be a full moon that month.  Unless there’s a compelling reason to schedule the trip on another date I try and find myself on location during the full moon, since it rises and sets close to sunrise and sunset times, producing some wonderful photographic opportunities.

The photograph above was taken from the Monument Valley visitors center about a half hour before sunset on the day before the full moon.

Sandstone Window, 2000

A side trip by our guide to a famous petroglyph location within the valley also lead to this fascinating study of frozen ripples in sandstone. Without our guide, Tom Phillips, we would never have found this unique perspective on theEye Window.

Monochrome Rockscape, 2000

I have to admit that after awhile red-rock and blue-sky starts to become tedious. I liked this composition but couldn’t bear the colour combination any longer. A quick conversion to monochrome made it much more appealing.
