Looking Back...

As you wander around the Monument Valley, you come across some of the best desertscapes that you would want to view one after the other. If catching a glimpse of the three mittens weren't enough, you also have a variety of buttes to whet your appetite even more. These are the famed Totem Poles. There are other photo ops around this place which you can attempt only with guides.The contrast of the rocks and the sky shout out more so in the mornings and evenings than at any other time of the day.


As cold engulfs most of the Northern Hemisphere and makes us yearn for the glorious summer days, something I only experienced for a few years now, I wanted to re-live some of the best summer days that I had spent. My trip to Arizona back in June 2009 was one of the most difficult ones that I had done alone. There were a lota challenges wrt. food and esp accommodation but I simply endured them all. On the night before I left for Monument Valley from the North Rim of Grand Canyon, I simply had to sleep in my car.


Looking back, I don't think I will be half as daring as I used to be a few years ago...


This is a mere use of the Polarizer without which the deep blue skies might not have been possible.


Thanks for viewing and have a nice week ahead everyone!
