This is one of my favorite photos and places; it shows John Ford's Point, Monument Valley, Utah.

I imagined the rider on the point was the Duke waiting to meet the stagecoach.

If you ever saw any of John Wayne's movies that were filmed here and you are a fan you will know the story.

Photo taken with my Nikon 35mm film camera.

    Such a rare POV. To have that many vertical features within the frame is remarkable, considering the expanse. Ford's Point is most prominently featured in "The Searchers," and it can be seen in "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" also.
