On our trip through Utah in November we went to Monument Valley, which is famous for it's rock formations and the many movies filmed there. I kept expecting John Wayne to ride up at any minute! (John Ford filmed several westerns there.) I know people who are unfamiliar with the west, or who haven't been here, put all the separate states in one big category "the west". But, each state has it's own beauty, it's own geology, it's own colors. The colors of Monument Valley, which is southern Utah and northern Arizona are very different from the colors here in Colorado.
I started this series with small color studies to help me see the differences. The winter colors there are very grayed and muted. I've really found it inspiring to mix all these "new" color notes. Traveling is a real opportunity to see so much.
