Este tramo va desde Monument Valley al Mexican Hat y el paisaje es realmente espléndido, con formaciones rocosas de colores rojizos al fondo, en las que los elementos de la naturaleza esculpieron formas muy peculiares.
We had a beautiful sunrise this morning and what is even more amazing is I was up in time to capture it! This was taken on the Colorado National Monument.
My trip 2012 October - USA - Utah
After a day's drive, we dropped our bags in our hotel Mexican Hat. This town is near Monument Valley, we went for a walk, I was looking for the mythical picture of Highway 163, and the sun appeared, I stopped following me and I took some photos at the roadside without tripod. It was beautiful.

C'était magnifique.

Monument Valley is officially a large area which includes much of the area surrounding Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, a Navajo Nation equivalent to a national park.
Monument Valley has been featured in many forms of media since the 1930s. Appearances include films, such as Westerns by director John Ford, cartoons such as Chip n' Dale's Rescue Rangers, Metallica's music video I Disapear and science fiction movies such as Back to the Future III; television appearances as in MacGyver; as well as DVD covers, book covers, and video games such as the Playstation 3 video game Motorstorm and the NES game Rad Racer II.
Still in Monument Valley, partaking in the local non-alcoholics drinks (I think) :-)
Two rangers were giving us a lot of information on the valley, and mentioned an electrical storm that had been expected, after a little persuasion I think they call it bourbon, both them, off duty I must say agreed to takes us back in for the best views, also making sure we were well aware of the dangers, In these early days however cameras especially mine, would never be able to capture this image, it is however very real to me, only the bottom part of the image is the real one, the sky is made up different images taken that night, this is how I remember the nights very scary entertainment. The landscape overwhelms, not just by its beauty but also by its size. I do hope you enjoy my memories.
"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature." ~~Anne Frank
Monument Valley Morning
Thanks for sharing the experience,
The Fyrish Monument is a monument built in 1782 on Fyrish Hill (Cnoc Fyrish), in Fyrish near Alness, Easter Ross, Scotland, on the orders of Sir Hector Munro, 8th of Novar, a native lord of the area who had served in India as a general. As the local population were being cleared off their land, employment was a problem and so it was built to give the locals some work. It was said that Sir Hector rolled stones from the top of the hill to the bottom, thereby extending the amount of time worked and paying the labourers for additional hours.
It represents the Gate of Negapatam, a port in Madras, India, which General Munro took for the British in 1781. It is visible from almost anywhere in the parishes of Kiltearn and Alness.

Monument Valley shot from the balcony of the onsite restaurant. The clouds were perfect for this shot so I emphasized the sky. Monument Valley is owned and run by the Navajo.

"La vera star dei miei film western è sempre stato il paesaggio... la mia località preferita è Monument Valley. Ci sono fiumi, montagne, pianure, deserti: qualsiasi cosa la terra possa offrire... Lo considero il luogo più completo, più bello e pacifico del mondo." John Ford.

Monument Valley (Navajo: Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, meaning valley of the rocks) is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the southern border of Utah with northern Arizona (around 36°59′N 110°6′W / 36.983°N 110.1°W / 36.983; -110.1), near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation, and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163.
The area is part of the Colorado Plateau. The floor is largely Cutler Red siltstone or its sand deposited by the meandering rivers that carved the valley. The valley's vivid red color comes from iron oxide exposed in the weathered siltstone. The darker, blue-gray rocks in the valley get their color from manganese oxide.
The buttes are clearly stratified, with three principal layers. The lowest layer is Organ Rock shale, the middle de Chelly sandstone and the top layer is Moenkopi shale capped by Shinarump siltstone. The valley includes large stone structures including the famed Eye of the Sun.
Between 1948 and 1967, the southern extent of the Monument Upwarp was mined for uranium, which occurs in scattered areas of the Shinarump siltstone; vanadium and copper are associated with uranium in some deposits (see Uranium mining in Arizona).

Here is another of the series of photos I took driving from California to Oklahoma with my dad. This is Monument Valley Utah. The whole trip was wonderful. We saw so many beautiful scenes like this that it was a bit overwelming at times.
Taken with a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 18-200mm lens at 1/80 sec, f/11, 18 mm and ISO 200 with a polarizing filter.

The Viktor Monument surpasses the modern blocks of New Belgrade ( Serbien ).
This is probably the most photographed scene in all of Monument Valley, Utah, because of the vista point which lays this scape out in front of you. The man on horseback is a Navajo indian who was glad to put himself in the scene at the whim of the tourists.

Because I do not wish to show the world as it is and instead prefer
to show it as I wish it to be, I handcraft each and every picture in photoshop.
This picture is S.O.O.P!

I'm always very busy, but not too busy for my friends.
Thanks for the visit and the comments/faves!
A photograph from another part of the marvelous Monument Valley, quite possibly my favorite part of the trip; capturing the scrub land and grasses together with the cotton wool clouds. Cloud formations we never get in England. Least ways not in London!!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and Sunday.
