Totem Pole at Sunrise - Monument Valley, Arizona
Merry Christmas everyone.
Above is an image I made while on vacation to Monument Valley between Christmas and New Years in 2009. Among many reasons, I love this image because my family is with me--sister and brother in law--freezing their tails off like. I'm not so sure they were as happy to be out there with me as I was, crazy brother doing the nature photography thing and all. Still, lots to celebrate when you're with people you love in an environment you love.
(update) ps - forgot to mention Vicki and Marks old friends (and my new ones) were freezin their tush's off as well when this scene was photographed. In fact, they left Michigan to escape these temps in the teens when they retired to southern Arizona. Somehow northern Arizona did not get the message they were vacationing with us and set the weather appropriately. Thanks for being such troopers.
