Utah and Arizona
Continuing a series of posts from a trip to the Southwest United States, this is from a stop in Monument Valley, UT. Without a doubt, this was one place I knew was going to be a bucket-list place to make photos. Being that it is in so many movies, it is almost instantly recognizable as the American West. The initial photo is from John Ford Point named for the director of many movies in the Westerns genre. This was above all the most tourist-y place in the park, but having a rider on a horse in that setting is worthy of a cliche image.
From a photography perspective, there is a pleasing combination of colors here. On one hand the clear blue skies complements the red sands of the rock. With the dry desert air, there is no haze to contend with making all the images sharp right out of camera.
