Story Behind the Photo:
In early spring of this year, toward the end of a ten-day photography trip, I found myself in Monument Valley once again.
This was an amazing morning light-wise… What the picture doesn’t tell you, is how incredibly frigid the temperature was, despite all the warm light… The kind of cold with a wind-chill that cuts right through your clothes…
My friend and I were the only ones out on the park’s roads this morning, most likely due to the wind-chill.
I was trying to photograph the “3 Sisters” rock formation, when one of the resident Navajo free-range horses walked up from grazing the fields to pose for a portrait and gave me an even better photo opportunity. Seemingly unaffected by the cold, he stayed there for quite a while, letting me try out quite a few different types of composition. This was my favorite of the set.
