Colorado Trip - Day 3 - A Photo Study of Shiprock New Mexico





I am not going to say a lot about these. Shiprock is one impressive sight. It is a mystery and very sacred to the Navajo people. I hope you enjoy these different views.

Don't you love those quick thundershowers that show up out west? That bottom shot captures that phenomenon perfectly.

The top shot definitely takes the cake here, although I like the second one a LOT because it encourages the viewer to roam around the photo instead of to look directly in the center. And, it makes me feel like I'm on another planet.

Thanks a bunch for posting these.

I've read, and re-read all of Tony Hillerman's mystery novels over the years. He's one of my favorite authors. His main characters live and work on the Navajo reservation and Shiprock figures prominently in most of his novels.

I've seen a picture or two over the years of the actual Shiprock, but your's are the best by far.

The first is my favorite, because of the clouds. The last is the only way I've seen Shiprock personally - from a long way away!
