Wondrous Monument Valley
Location Origin Story
Monument Valley in Four Corners as seen here from the south side looking north, in this unusual field of view from a unique aerial perspective. Flying on the south side of the monument in the late afternoon, I came upon this vision which illustrates how vibrantly colorful this place is… especially from the air.
Monument Valley is known as Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, by the First Nations Diné (Navajo) meaning “Valley of the Rocks” This region of the Colorado Plateau is characterized by this iconic cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor.

About This Photograph
This afternoon scene was photographed during the month of April while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Four Corners Area near the First Nations Navajo Lands.
The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.
Zedekiah used the afternoon sunlight to blend with the vibrant colors of the rock strata.
Timing and placement played major roles in this scene revealing itself for this image composition.
Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
