Photography and commentary from John Fujimagari

Hazy Morning, Monument Valley

Hazy Sunrise, Monument Valley


I may have mentioned it before, I love the American Southwest and Monument Valley has a special place in my heart. The majesty of this location is hard to translate to mere pixels, but I’ve made my attempt. There were lots of photographers around the Mittens near sunset, but just after sunrise in the off peak season, I had this spot to myself. For photographers, it means double checking your exposure, focus and composition, while the light is changing very quickly as the sun is rising. At the same time, you try to take some time to drink in the scene, the peace and the tranquility, and be, maybe just a little pleased with yourself.

In the best light…
