Teardrop of Joy

Description

Monument Valley, AZ

I hired a Navajo guide to take me back to photograph the Teardrop Arch.  It was super windy and a bit chilly.  I literally hooked on my 30lb camera bag and I had to still hold my tripod so it didn’t fall over.  My guide and I spoke for a little over 2 hours.  We mainly talked about the history of the Navajo and his personal history as well as the cuurent state of the Navajo nation.  It was incredibly fascinating and I was pretty excited for several hours to have such an interesting conversation and such a nice image.
