Soaring Raven

Soaring Raven

 

While I was perched high on the canyon rim, looking down 600’ to the bottom, the ravens ride the thermals and updrafts. Whirling and wheeling along the cliffs, they seemed joyous fluttering in the wind.

Canyon deChelly

Canyon deChelly

 

The dust storm rages overhead while the sun burns through the haze to light the bottom of the canyon. The green foliage marks the course of the water, when the rain does fall.

Looking down into Canyon deChelly, Spider Rock is an amazing spire. It looks to be the inspiration for some of the old Roadrunner and Coyote cartoons. Another of the sights that make Arizona a treat for photographers.

Hazy Sunrise, Monument Valley

 

One of my favourite locations, there is a wealth of photo opportunities around here. I could have spent weeks here and not exhausted my fascination with the place.

Most of Elephant Butte is still shadow by the rock formation to my right. The sun is just touching the top of the butte, while the structures in the open are fully lit.
