A most unusual picture.That I have not been able to comment on till now. Very interesting to say the least,and the shadows of passers by, the little log house top right, the beautiful blue sky, and the one on the mural,all make this shot different.  j.e.s.......

Ah, Monument Valley, yes. But please don't tell the people of Arizona that it's in Utah; they might want it back.

interesting image, irreal, melancholy; whiich it must be for tibet to be reduced to a mere province of china.

Interesting photo that takes a while to figure out. Avoiding the right part of the wall or letting it a little bit more into the image maybe would have made a better composition, but of course I don't know whether that would have even been possible. Vey nice and well seen :)

@Tom Bamburak Monument Valley extends into Utah and Arizona and is part of the Navajo Nation. Tse'Bii'Ndzisgaii is the Navajo name.
