“After spending last night at the Grand Canyon and waking up at 5 am, we were all a bit sleepy heading in to monument valley. I was behind the wheel so the boys could sleep, driving from Arizona to Utah to this incredible place.
As we got closer to our destination the land became more orange, rocky and dry – I really felt like I was in Utah, it was exactly like I had imagined. The land around the vast empty road was mostly flat except for the amazing, huge rock structures coming up from nowhere. I had seen plenty of pictures of this place but nothing prepared me for seeing it first hand.
This road and view also features in Doctor Who, series 6 Episode: The Impossible Astronaut. We left Monument Valley and headed on our way, but we didn’t leave behind the amazing views of this incredible state of Utah. “
Looks beautiful and great shot!
