Monument Valley Utah by Lanis Rossi
Clear

My heroes have always been cowboys.

This is one of my favorite photos and places; it shows John Ford’s Point, Monument Valley, Utah.

Taking this photo I imagined the rider on the point was the Duke waiting to meet the stagecoach.

If you ever saw any of John Wayne’s movies that were filmed here and you are a fan you will know the story.

Photo taken with my Nikon 35mm SLR film camera.

Originally from Philadelphia, I currently live in NJ. Now retired, I once worked in the commercial printing industry for 47 years as a pressman, shop foreman and plant manager as well as being a wedding & portrait photographer on weekends. I now enjoy traveling which allows me the time for taking photos that turn into beautiful memories. Although I love to take photos of my travels there are beautiful places, and wonderful things to photograph right here in our own communities.

  • Hi, Actually I took this photo while on a tour, later I went back and took my car in and enjoyed riding the roads. Monument Valley is one of my favorite places. I love it. Thanks for your comments.
