Photographing Monument Valley
Join the leagues of Ansel Adams, Georgia O’Keeffe and Annie Leibovitz in your quest to capture the timeless beauty of Monument Valley. The Valley has helped to make each of these photographers famous as well as the likes of actor John Wayne and director John Ford. Maybe you too will find the memorizing landscape as a turning point in your journey.
There is no bad time to photograph Monument Valley. But many feel the winter months are some of the best time due to the low angle of the sun as well as the fewer number tourists that are on hand to spoil the image you have been waiting for hours to capture when the clouds, sun, and shadows seem to align for perfection.
Be sure to bring your tripod for some exhilarating long exposure starlight nighttime exposures taken from the privacy and comfort of your own balcony.
