New on 500px : Sunset Under Agathla Peak by jstennant by jstennant

I always wanted to photograph this formation. Agathla Peak is very similar to Shiprock, but a bit less popular. I planned to shoot this on my way through Kayenta toward Colorado. I had it all to myself on a Friday evening. I couldn’t have asked for a better scene and a more satisfying moment as the sun peaked through the cloud layer. Mother nature really came through for me here.

New on 500px : Center of the Universe by nightscape by nightscape

The Navajo people believe this sacred mountain is the center of the universe. In March, I photographed the Milky Way over Agathla Peak or “El Capitan” – south of Monument Valley, Arizona. The peak is an eroded volcanic plug that rises over 1500 feet (457 meters) above the surrounding area. It is 7 miles (11 km) north of Kayenta (providing the glow to the right). – Spaces in my 2014 NightScape Workshops schedule are still available.
