Monument Valley Tribal Park

I had been up early for the sunrise this day, and much later took a walk into the desert for a view to the west at sunset...the looming rock formation is named Mitchell Butte

again...the time in the metadata (exif) is off by one hour...this was actually 19:12 hrs, in late September 2012

Nikon D7000
Nikkor 18-200mm - 1/1250s f/11.0 at 112.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium large auto

Mysterious & primal. How many others stood in the same place and gave thanks that the life giving orb returned to drive away the darkness?
