Monument Valley is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the Arizona-Utah state line The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163.
Monument Valley has been featured in many forms of media since the 1930s. Director John Ford used the location for a number of his best-known films, and thus, in the words of critic Keith Phipps, "its five square miles[note 1] have defined what decades of moviegoers think of when they imagine the American West."

What an eye catching image due to the spectacular and original tonality! Well seen and composed with great sense of the symmetry. Like it!

paesaggio che riporta alla memoria i western di una volta, John Ford è sicuramente l'artefice di questo e con lui tutte le leggende di Hollywood.
Un bel panorama, molto profondo e di grande effetto, grazie anche al cielo.
Penso che stare li a fotografare sia una gran bella sensazione.

A particularly remarkable landscape that has become known to us through the movies.
It has to be the first time that I see it in such dominant red tones.
Particularly when it comes to the clouds in the sky.
Best regards, Paul

Beautiful and very eye catching image, the tones and colors as well as the light here are so very appealing. You composition is superb too with the rule of thirds being used to absolutely perfect result.
Thans for sharing

Merhaba İhsan Bey,
Gerçekten etkileyici bir çalışma olmuş, çok güzel bir renk yakalamışsınız. Sanki Mars'ı çekmişsiniz gibi... Diğer fotoğraflar arasında hemen dikkat çekiyor. Tebrikler.

amazing view and very well taken picture with high quality colors and light management. I very much enjoy the simple and elegant composition and well proportioned framing. The clouds on the sky definitely add more beauty to the final result.
Thanks for sharing and kind regards

A photograph from Nature with amazing symmetry!
The colours and the overall mood are breathtakingly beautiful.
I love how you have used the pathway to lead tortuously around the f/g.
My warm regards,

Splendide, tant pour la composition, les couleurs, le ciel dramatique, la route qui serpente dans la vallée, on ce croirait sur une autre planète, superbe

Hmmm, looks quite familiar once again. :) An intersting result here, I like the dominant red tones, making this appear almost more like a Martian landscape and sky rather than the Southweest U.S. It certainly gives off a unique vibe, and makes one stop for a closer analysis. It sure is beautiful at a distance, but can also be very unforgiving territory. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Yes, this scene has been in many many movies and tv shows, even music videos.
Michael Jackson used this backdrop for one of his.
the color you have here seems very 'mars' like, how'd you do that! haha
love the clouds too, they fill the frame nicely.

Thanks for your visit to my gallery
I think this photo is very classical and familiar. I love the old westerns with John Wayne and John Ford. And this is a super nice artistic version of Monumental Valley. Never shot better in any western film.
:) cheers Frank
