Elderhostel is good for you Marilyn! Another wonderful landscape that deserves high praise.
Monument Valley is a stuning area, it makes me remember the old western films with cowboys and indians on their mustang horses...Thanks Marilyn to share these splendid photos. Cheers, Jean
Hello Marilyn. I spent a while watching these nice photos. I love this desertic place. This one I liked especially: the composition, lighting, shadows ... It's very good. Thanks for sharing..
Happy Easter! Greetings from Spain. Pepe
Marilyn, i looked again that beautiful picture and i give it a golden star and also "best of".
You deserve it !!!
Excellent view, Marilyn, Jacques is right ! How is weather in Ontario? Was sowing in East Canada and will be snow on next Thursday... :-( Anyway, Yellow Star, greetings, Annick
This is a wonderful shot, congratulations.
I like it!
Photographs like this and your 'through the window' shots always make me think of the people who lived there and that this was their everyday view. Did they see the beauty and majesty that we see through your lens? Kind of make me wonder...
I chose this as my one photo for our final "picture review" because I feel that it's "my kind of photo," so I especially appreciate your very kind comments, Ian, Jean, Pepe, Jacques, Annick, Sylvie, and Vicki.
Only tonight's dinner remains of our photography Elderhostel, and tomorrow we fly back to winter!! Cheers, Marilyn
Very nice composition! :D
Thank you, eme jota. This was not the reason our group stopped here, but this is what I found most interesting. I'm glad you like it.
I love your whole series. It looks like you used every spare minute. This one is extra special, IMHO. The wood is such a different texture in that sparse desert, it makes for a very dramatic shot.
Thank you, Hank, for your comments. You're right about using the time! The Elderhostel kept us very busy, and during the days before it, we kept ourselves every bit as busy!
I'm especially glad that you like this, because it's a special favorite of mine.
I think by now the thing on the nextnext trip has been decided ;-). Y* too. The composition is great: the old wooden poles serve is some sort of a very atypical frame for the truly amazing landscape in the background. Really wonderful. Cheers, Christophe
Thanks, Christophe, for the comment and Y*. Monument Valley has an amazing wealth of photographic opportunities.
I think that at least some people in the Southwest would call this an arbour. I learned about their use doing research on a different tribe (not Navajo) in southwestern Oklahoma. Obviously it's to give shade--a framework on which to put vegetation--branches or grasses. If you zoom in on this, you can see what is not traditional: what we call "chicken wire" (the mesh used for cages and fences for small animals), used here on top to hold the vegetation!
wonderful photo alos different from most of the Monument Valley pictures! in my FAVOURITES with many compliments!
