Photographer's Note

Monument Valley, likely the place that, after the Grand Canyon, is the most photographed in Arizona. Having been closed for over a year due to the Navajo Reservation's restrictions, the 15-mile lollipop road through the valley has finally opened again, albeit with restrictions on the number of vehicles on the road (30).

I chose this image's title to reflect the Valley's use as a backdrop for many western films, the tree imitating a director's use of his hands to frame the shot for the film's next scene.

As usual, open in a new tab for the best view.

The image was cropped, auto contrast applied, and brightened slightly.

ISO 100, f/18 @ 1/100th second, 16mm focal length
