The Monument Valley

Arizona, USA

West Mitten Butte, East Mitten Butte and Merrick Butte.

I have chosen this photo as my favorite of 2011 for the
WEEKLY INFORMAL CHALLENGE - WEEK 90 - "Your favorite image of 2011".

It's the place I was dreaming about since I started watching western movies as a kid.
Going there and seeing it in my own eyes was a magical moment to me that will be treasured.

1/500s f/10.0 at 29.0mm iso200 full exif

Very nice shooting Jola. We were booked to stay there for three days at the end of this month. Sadly, the Navajo have been severely hit by the virus and had to shut down all the Indian attractions until further notice. Many have died and at a rate higher than the national average. We will go when this is over and I have yet to see this site and I have lived in nearby California all my life.

Outstanding photo of this icon of the southwest. Love the use of distance to show the monuments and how they stand above the flat desert. V.

Hello Jola. A terrific expansive view of Monument Valley. So magnificent and so foreboding. A great photographic find....and very nicely done. Michael.
