Took a sunrise/sunset tour in Monument and Mystery Valley with Tom Phillips in Aug 2010. Six in total on the tour, four of them in my party of which only I was taking photographs. Tom gave discounted rated for the non tripod members of my group.
Amazing experience and fantastic tour. Photographs and memories will last a lifetime. Standing watching the sun rise between the Totem Pole and Dancing Sisters whilst the echos of Toms flute were sounding in the silence of the valley was amazing. The colours and light were changing by the minute and the range of photographs were staggering.
Just after sunrise, a short walk around to the rippled sand dunes close to the totem to catch the sun lighting the Totem, cliffs, grass and the ripples on the dunes was spectacular. Put this with the petroglyphs, the cliff dwellings, the rock formations, the hot air balloon floating over the mittens, the arches and the Eye of the Sun and Ear of the Wind, a view of the valley through teardrop........what can I say amazing. Tom's narrative on the Navajo culture as we travelled around added a whole other level of meaning.
Stayed at The View....and what a view it is. A storm that night, lightening over the Messa...caught on 'film'
We'll be back.
