Monument Valley Sunset @ Mile Marker 13

I'm finally home after a week of travel across the southwest, from San Francisco back to Fort Worth, Texas. I'm just starting to go through all the images shot along the way and wanted to see how this one turned out in particular.

 

(Day 3) Monument Valley at sunset at the mile 13 marker. I've seen several shots from here including James Neeley's Mile Marker 13 which I thought was wonderful enough to try to do one for myself. The sunset was special enough to convince me to camp roadside for the evening to try to catch a sunrise the next morning before driving across northern New Mexico and heading on to Taos.

 

Shot is a 7xp HDR with some photoshop post color work and one car retouched out.
