On a trip to Monument Valley I was driving along taking the usual turista photos and happened across this cow taking a drink in a watering hole. The ensuing painting was done from the snapshot taken by a point-and-shoot camera.
Monument Valley is one of those places that everyone should visit at least once in their life. Watching old John Wayne movies does not count. It’s an incredibly beautiful place. Unfortunately (or fortunately) it’s a heck of a long way from just about anywhere. But you should make the effort. It’s not a national park. The whole thing is on a Navajo Reservation on the Utah/Arizona border.
