Magical morning at Monument Valley. I awoke before down and drove over from where I was staying at Gouldings Lodge “across the road” (about a 15 minute drive away. You can see it off in the distance). Was taking photos of the classic Mittens view with the sun rising behind them creating some interesting sillouttes. Turned around and saw this faboulous burst of color behind me. Quickly repositioned and got a few shots off before it changed. Had an earlier version of this up for awhile. This has some subtle changes and is a higher quality version.
