Red Rocks

There's just somethng about the American southwest. Part of the attraction is being in warm temps while snow flies back home, but the red rock just wants to draw you back.

I'm in Monument Valley, home of numerous John Ford movies. As you look across the valley, it's not hard to envision that cavalry troop galloping in a cloud of dust. The warm evening sun warms the landscape, making the rock almost glow.

A real treat here is an unobstructed view of the night sky, and very little light pollution. That allows an ideal opportunity for night photography. The view from the room reveals a sky full of stars.

Probably the biggest feature of the valley is it's very size.  The scope of the landscape really has to be experienced to understand it. More to come.
