Photographer's Note

I have another image of Totem Pole I want to post, but I thought I would post this image today to split them up. This is Ear-of-the-Wind, which is an arch also only viewable on a Navajo guided tour of Monument Valley. As you see, from this POV, the moon is visible through the arch.

We arrived at this point about half way through the morning part of our tour - just before 09:00. As I wanted the grasses in the foreground I had to take the camera off the tripod to get down low, so put the ISO up to 200.

See what you think about the one in the WS. As it was a photographic tour, the guide pointed out a place to stand on a rock, so a dead tree acted as frame for the arch. I found it funny to see there was a cross marked so you knew where to stand!! Anyway I took the shot, but I would have preferred it if the rock had been higher, so the frame made by the branches would appear lower, and not so close to the bottom of the arch.

ISO200, FL32mm,
