Every day

Imagine everyday starts about the same way here at Monument Valley, Arizona. The sun is either more north or more south depending on the time of year, and watching the day unfold as the sun rises I realize time is irrelevant. I also realize it's been about a year since I posted any images?

    It's beautiful here at sunrise. Well done on the shot, I have a similar one from a couple of years ago.

    Fabulous! Monument valley is a special place and especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset when all the tourists and tour buses have left.

    Wonderful shot Joe. I, like the others, have missed you as well and glad to see you back. You are or have been in my favorite area of the country and I hope to relocate there someday. I've been away for several months as well but hoping I can get back to uploading again soon. Really excellent capture of that beautiful monument valley scene. I planned to take my daughter there last April but the wind was gusting up to 60 mph so we'll have to try again.

      Thank you very much, Mark! The stretch from northern Arizona, southern Utah is breathtaking! It'll be waiting for you to see and explore.

      Thank you, callmemom. I've been traveling, enjoying life and trying to figure out how to continue to take decent pictures while traveling without photography being the main purpose of traveling.

    Is it true that behind you at this point is carpark and a roadside cafe?
    • Joe Lightheart
      12 months ago
      Yes, if you pay the $20 USD entrance fee to the Navajo Nation you can go to their visitor center and gift shop and large carpark and large open decks and see this sight. The fee allows you to drive along the loop road below at your own leisure and stop wherever you like to hike or take one of their tours in open air vans. I camped in the back yard of a Navajo woman's yard and this is also the view from her back yard and a 15 minute walk uphill from my tent.

        He's doing well in that he's having treatment for his arthritis which is helping so he is more active. On the negative side, he has cancer which is in remission but the vet is reluctant to operate because he has a heart murmur. His teeth are not in great condition but he's still enjoying life and he loves going up to the farm (see "Every Four Hours" etc.) where I've been leaving him a lot recently because I've been away in Scotland with my mother who sadly died recently. I've missed you and your pictures and did try and encourage you back to here one time.

          Honestly Tom, I didn't have much to gripe about a year ago with this site except in Hawaii the site was slow. I am not in Hawaii currently and am currently closer to UK and this site is noticeably faster here in New Mexico. Next month I will be in Hawaii briefly and can tell for sure if it was as slow as last year. Overall, I enjoy being at this site more than I have anywhere else. Thank you very much for that!

    Hey Joe, Looks like you've been having a great time.

    It's nice to see you back although my own visits to CAS are now sporadic as I've been concentrating on my own website and photography. I'll message you via FB and let have the link if you want. Cheers, Phil

    Just beautiful! I see that during your absence you've changed system completely, or so it seems. How many Fuji's you now own? Any Nikon stuff left in your bag?
