As you're coming in from the north.

Returned home last evening from a swing through southeastern Utah, southwest Colorado and Monument northeast Arizona. We visited Canyon of the Ancients, Mesa Verde, Shiprock, Valley of the Gods and Monument valley...it was a beautiful trip! There was snow on the ground, or snowing, everywhere and it was hard to get above 30*'s. It was a beautiful trip! This is a shot as we were leaving Monument Valley yesterday morning on our way home. I find the winter better light better than summer light, for photography.

In the movie Forrest Gump, this is the place where he stopped running.

The winter light when available offers a lot of angular shadows when it comes from the South

From Utah looking south I believe, or Arizona looking north?
