Monument Valley Panoramic Photo

I just received an inquiry about my Monument Valley panoramic photo. I had forgotten about this image, and when I saw it again I was reminded of the beautiful, warm light that fell on the buttes when I last visited there. I was on my way south from Arches National Park in Utah to Page, Arizona. I had about 45 minutes to stop and admire the sunset, and then had to keep moving on down the road. I got this one image. You can click to see it larger (although the full size image in print spans about 8′). This was taken in January, and there is a slight dusting of snow on the ground:
