Sacred Land by Stuzal Sacred Land by Stuzal
The Navajo reservation land Arizona. A storm cloud was just making it's way across the plain, and ended up ruining a great photo shoot of the Monument Valley park. I was able to get some great shots of the other spires though.


I should clarify that the photo I am speaking of that was ruined was of the Monument Valley, not this shot here. I guess I should have clarified that earlier. Sorry about the confusion, I don't think this shot was ruined, these are the other spires.
