My Skywatch scene for today is from last year's trip to Monument Valley in NE Arizona. Another one of those that I almost passed up because I was dog tired and on my way back to the car to call it a day, but just had to set up one more time to get this gorgeous sky over the red-rock butte. Never put your camera back in the bag until you're actually at home and it's pitch black dark outside:)

At the root of creativity is an impulse to understand, to make sense of random and often unrelated details. For me, photography provides an intersection of time, space, light, and emotional stance. One needs to be still enough, observant enough, and aware enough to recognize the life of the materials, to be able to 'hear through the eyes. - Paul Caponigro
Thats a beautiful shot. I'm glad you took the time for one last photo.

The intriguing shape of the rock against the blue sky is dramatic and stunning! Beautiful photo!

I am so glad you toughed it out and got that shot! Wow, what a beauty!
I hate the digging the camera back out but you just have to! As this shows it can produce some excellent work we must know that in our subconscious.
Stunningly gorgeous, as usual!!!!!
Everything will be alright as long as you don't start sculpting mashed potatoes!
What an absolutely magnificent scene and gorgeous photograph! It's a painted sky! So wonderful.
What a beautiful, peaceful shot Mark...love the deep rich hues..and you are so right...don't put the camera away until you are home and it is pitch black outside...:)))
Such a beautiful landscape. The colors are gorgeous!
beautiful use of darks and lights. Now you'll be vacationing at the ocean!
One of the best, and most professional looking photos I have seen recently.
You got it all, and most important is the clean presentation. The blog template works perfectly for this shot.
