Golden Sands of Monument Valley

This is just one of many of the spots I found interesting at Monument Valley which is located on the Utah/Arizona border and is entirely within the Navajo Indian Reservation. The light was perfect to enhance the intense shades and multi-layered textures of the desert floor. While taking this shot, I contemplated on how difficult it must be to maintain life in such extreme conditions but relished the intense colors and peaceful mood.
