“Earth and Sky”

The natural structures of the Colorado Plateau seem to blend earth and sky – even on a stormy day – as the natural forces of erosion still continue to shape the land.  The dignity of their display exemplifies patience. 

Big and memorable cinematic productions have frequently featured the landscape of Monument Valley as a familiar backdrop – especially Western movies of the past.  More recently, the iconic structures were a significant visual in the movie “Forrest Gump.”

Over the next few months, I will continue to feature images of Monument Valley, Mystery Valley and Valley of the  Gods in my blog.  I hope that you will enjoy them…



  1. HV- I’m overwhelmed by the stark images.
    Not at all warm and fuzzy. Having difficulty relating.

    • I hope that you are well, Jim. Thanks for your comments.

  2. As always, your photography takes my breath away. I can hear the silence in that Valley. Peaceful in a very stark way!
    I love your descriptions of your photos as much as the photos themselves. 🙂

    • I so appreciate your feedback, Joanny. I am glad that my commentary is helpful.

    • The area of Monument Valley is truly spectacular in black and white.
