Monument Valley has been the location for many western films and is the vision of what people think of the American Southwest. This image here is of Merrick Butte with the East Mitten Butte to the left of Merrick. The famous triangle of buttes is in this same location which include these two buttes along with a third West Mitten Butte and can be seen in the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. The harsh sun wasn’t ideal for images, but I was able to use the wispy clouds and use the contrast for the shot of Merrick Butte. I didn’t get enough time to really explore the area this trip. I plan on coming back with a more strategic plan next time and hopefully capture the area during the light at sunrise and sunset.
