I was gone for over a month and now I'm ready to share some of my favourite pictures of the USA.
I took this picture in Monument Valley, Utah. We were caught in a sandstorm but I was quite amazed at the mood created by this particular photo.

ood Evening Paul -
Excellent capture! Storms in Monument Valley can produce some rather spectacular images. Personally I am looking for a snow storm the next time I visit the valley.
Thanks for sharing

Very nice atomoshphere you've captured here. Kind of portentious, a little biblical (as though a divine storm is imminent) while also being a pure slice of Americana (the wild west, the open road, the sense of space).
Elegant, spare, and beautiful.

wow! one day i must drive this road!! great picture i really like it, perhaps some minor postwork could really top it off. such as maybe a slight leveling of horizon, perhaps a tighter crop with a little less sky, some minor adobe adjustments and/or a frame. just suggestions on how to possibly improve this already great picture! thanks for sharing :)

Welcome back, i missed your pictures.
This is an excellent photo, very well captured, with a great perspective. The road give your picture a tremendous depth, really very impressive.

Welcome back from your hiatus... where did you go?
Never had a chance to visit Utah, but looking forward to the opportunity to photograph this magnificent landscape. Nice sharp photo with a good composition- meaning I like the fact that you DID NOT put the road smack dab in the middle of the photo. My only suggestion Paul would have been the use of a circular polariser to bring out a bit more detail in the sky.
Nice shot... I've posted a workshop with a slightly different version. I hope you like it?
