After shooting the annular eclipse, I tried my luck with the final frontier. Staying at the View Hotel in Monument Valley provides a stunning view of the Valley and the sky. This is looking south-east from the balcony of my room.

It's amazing to find light pollution in a remote place like this. But, I think the light pollution above the horizon ads some needed color in this photo.
