Seen from the visitor center, the two mirror-image mittens form the classical panorama of Monument Valley. Pictured on all the postcards they have bocome a visual cliche. The images below are a growing collection, shot at different times of year, day and night, and lighting conditions, that attempt to capture new interpretations of this unique pair of formations.
A date for your calendar:
Twice a year the setting sun aligns to cast a shadow of the West Mitten onto its complimentary partner. But, how about a photo of the shadow that also includes the full moon rising to the side of the Mittens? That will next occur on September 7th, 2014. Maybe I will see you there??
