    As we are approaching the New Year and looking forward to the future, this seems like a good photo for our Where in the World quiz.

So, what do you think? Specifically, where did Brenda create this dramatic photograph? No peeking...

Happy New Year!

Approaching Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Utah/Arizona. I like the way the road leads the eye to Monument Valley.

This photo was taken on the highway between Kayenta, Arizona and Mexican Hat, Utah -- in Monument Valley. This location is about 20 minutes outside of Kayenta.

Happy New Year, Everyone! Some of you have no doubt been 'in the area' where this photograph was made - maybe the same tripod holes? - although I didn't see any when I made this image...Good guesses! Let's see if you can guess this one...

This was taken near Lone Pine, California in the Alabama Hills. That's Mount Whitney in the background, just left of center. (A well-known photograph of Ansel Adams was taken from near this location.)

You're right, Patrick! Not as many people know that area, even with Mt. Whitney in the background! It's such a great place to photograph - so many unique viewpoints. Yes, Ansel did some nice work in that area - Mt. Tom was the famous one that I can think of, with large rocks in the foreground - that's further north, but I think he also did some work right in the Alabama Hills, he must have!

Is this stretch of road where they filmed a part of the movie "Forrest Gump"? I'll have to get a video capture... it looks like the part where Forrest quits his cross-country run, with the big group of runners following him. He stops and says something like "I'm tired, I think I'll go home now."

Does anybody have the video to compare it?

Brenda, those are both great photos!!! I'm sorry to be slow to respond. I've been to Lone Pine before but it has been a long time. The photo of Ansel Adams I was thinking of shows a snow covered Mt. Whitney in the background, a very dark Alabama Hills in the middle, and a horse munching grass in the foreground. The light spotlights Mt. Whitney and the horse. I have seen a print of the "straight" negative, and one of the hills has an "L" on it, which he eliminated in the musuem print.

Thanks - glad you like them! It's pretty humorous how many people always thought how "pure" Ansel was in his work, but he did a lot of manipulation in the darkroom - it was the 'performance' of the 'musical score', I think he called it. I remember that L in the straight neg, too.
