When I parked the car and got out with cameras in hand, the wind was blowing hard, and a sand storm was on its way. Regardless, my jaw dropped when I looked across expansive and famous Monument Valley, with its iconic spires that have formed the background for many Hollywood movies—especially those starring John Wayne. Every way I looked I saw beauty. But, I also was aware of the brewing sand storm, which I could see on the horizon, and I wanted to take as many photos as possible before it all went to heck, as it most likely would. Here’s one example of what I got. Main lesson learned was that it’s wise to come to a place like this, and stay for several days in order to get the most out of your camera. But, the three hours I did get were well worth the drive home later that afternoon—in the midst of said sandstorm—which is a totally different story.
