Sunset in the Monument Valley I took this image in the Monument Valley on a warm April evening. I was staying in The View hotel on the Navajo Indian Reservation and noticed a promising trail just behind the hotel. I hiked for about 15 minutes and got approximately 100-150 meters above the parking lot level. From that vantage point I had a fantastic view of the Valley in both eastern and western directions. The sun was very low, it was maybe 20 min. before the sunset. I saw this beautiful scene and all I had to do is to wait for the clouds to move in to complement it. The wind was howling in the rocks around me and I had to hold on to the tripod and the camera but at the same time, I was soaking what I saw in, humbled by the beauty of the Nature.
