Here are the last of our photos from Monument Valley. This was one of my favourite evenings of the winter break- making our away along the winding dirt road as the light faded and the rocks and sand changed colours about every 10 minutes before finally disappearing into black- The stars slowly coming out one by one and twinkling brighter than I had seen them in far too long- We tried to get closer to the giant 'mittens' to get some shots. It got dark. and freezing. so we finally piled into the car and made our way to Arizona. but not before getting some great long exposures. I love the desert so much. I miss it so much. every time I visit I have the hardest time leaving.
