The Mitten Shadow - Monument Valley

The Mitten Shadow - Monument Valley

Twice a year in September and March the West Mitten Butte casts a unique shadow on East Mitten Butte. I was fortunate to get to witness and photograph this event.

This photo was chosen as the Smithsonian Magazine Photo of the Day for June 3, 2014:
