Big Dipper Over Monument Valley

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 24 October 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I've always thought Monument Valley would be perfect for moonlight photography. A couple of weeks ago I finally got my opportunity. Finding the Big Dipper in the scene was a real bonus.

@DarkElf: Thanks, DarkElf. I was in New Zealand once about 15 years ago and found the night sky in the Southern Hemisphere beautiful but completely disorienting.
