I want to be there for sunset next time. Thanks for sharing this!
You're welcome, Jeff. Keep up the fine work.
Hank, I'm revving up for the trip even though it's two months away, and wow! I came upon this wonderful shot of yours. Stunning! Marilyn
Thanks Marilyn. I love this picture, and especially the car on the road below and between the mittens (left and right mittens are what these formations are aptly named).
Certainly the car gives scale to the monoliths, something that is missing from many pictures of Monument Valley...even my own, and it was this vehicle that I felt was racing the sunset - perhaps for a better vantage point.
Thanks for stopping by.
What a wonder!! Congratulations! Greetings, Matteo.
Thanks Matteo, this is one of my favorite shots. As I noted above, a favorite element of mine is the car racing the sunset which gives the photo scale.
Thank you AcheG. I appreciate your comments especially since you have done such a wonderful job recording Monument Valley yourself. I totally enjoyed wandering through your pages of the National Parks of the US and, of course, my home town, New York.
A "Y"for this magnificent picture!

Thank you FEIKA, every time I get a chace to llok at this shot I enlarge it just to recapture the scale of the beauty.
another reason for "racing sunset" ... they lock the gates to the drive after dark.
I didn't know that. As you know, this shot was taken form the parking lot of the visitor's center. It was straight to the motel after the sun was gone.
Thanks for visiting,
I saw this place at Google Earth. Very nice and fantastic mountain.
All the best from Iran,
Thank you Mahdi, and thanks for the link to your picture. There really is something beautiful and dramatic about the forms created by eroding rock.
This is a wonderful scenery. When I once was in the US I missed it... you can't do everything. Anyway, your picture gives successfully the idea. Ciao, Andrea
Thank you Andrea, for your generous comments about what I think is one of the most striking areas of the US. It's a pleasure to welcome you to my gallery as well.
