Jennifer and I have now toured Monument Valley area twice with the Phillips Photography family. This friendly and informative set of guides really go above and beyond to make sure that you get what you came for.
Here's the sunrise which was shot from the same day a little past 6:30 am. The Milky Way image almost exactly an hour and a half earlier around 5 am. The image was taken from the other side of the monument. Apologies to my friend Steve Bromley that the sky isn't more interesting. This was about as good as it got, but the colors were great!
Later that day we toured Mystery Valley again with Tuli and saw a wild mare and foal. Many thanks to Tuli of Phillips Photography Tours for his guidance and a fun tour.
