Photography is a lumpy road

I got up just as the sky was lightening in order to drive through Monument Valley and take photos in that nice dawn light. I wasn't the only one with that plan.

These guys had been waiting a while, each hoping to get pretty much the same shot of the Mittens. Something like this, but maybe with a little more sunlight:

Okay, but what else might I shoot. Down the ragged dirt and rock road I went, looking for interesting light and compositions, whether there are buttes involved or not. Along the way, a group of motorcyclists and I kept passing each other.

After a while, the guided tours started showing up. I waited for them to pass.

  1. Some fabulous shots there, Al. But the last is stunning yet sooo different than any of those the guys on "the line" will get. Very mystical.
