"The Mittens"

Standing tall above the Colorado Plateau in Monument Valley, the stratified sandstone buttes known as The Mittens appear as friendly sentries to visitors.

This late afternoon shot captured the sky mere minutes before a wind and rain storm struck. The pre-storm conditions lent a wonderful light, making the azure and lavender-colored sky a striking backdrop for the majestic wind and water sculpted stones.
