I've been going back in the archives and reprocessing some of my earlier images. My brother was a fantastic landscape photographer who has been taken from us way too soon. This was the last trip we had taken together and it's why I'm taking a look back. I think you'll recognize the 'Mittens' of Monument Valley from the many versions taken over the years. In his book "400 Photographs," Ansel Adams has an image very similar to this one. I hadn't seen his before I took mine so I was quite surprised to see it in his book. Pentax K20D, DA* 16-50mm f/2.8, 28mm, 1/125 @ f/8, ISO 100, PP in LR 4.2, in color and B&W.

An interesting composition that I haven't seen. Consider adding more contrast to the clouds in both images.

Thanks for the suggestion Mike. The lighting was very flat with the overcast and I've already pumped up the contrast quite a bit. I'll give it a try though. I guess I'll just have to go back for a reshoot with better weather.
