This was my first morning of three in Monument Valley. I was camping at the Goulding’s Resort and it had been a calm, quiet and comfortable night. A storm was predicted for the next day so I made sure I was up for this sunrise. The joke about photographing landscapes is that one of the hardest things about it is getting up early, way before it gets light. That’s very true. Another truism is that you don’t get the shot if you’re not there. I think I was rewarded for getting up early and being in place for this sunrise image of the East Mitten.
