Tse'Bii'Ndzisgaii (Monument Valley)

I have been visiting this awe-inspiring place several times, always trying to catch its grandness in a picture. I think this one finally did it - it would have been nice without the Navajo on the horse, but he adds the drama for me. This is a holy place for the Navajo; all buttes have names, and their gods live atop them. It is a place you have to experience; standing there, turning, and seeing the landscape all around you makes you feel small and insignificant. View large here

    It's great to see these photos. They're a great source of inspiration into what can be captured and shown. – Jason TEPOORTEN Nov 2 '12 at 22:13

    I haven't been back to photography much recently, except to come and check on the hall of fame. I'm sure I've said it before, but every time I'm blown away by the quality and diversity and downright awesomeness of your weekly photos! – Benjol Feb 14 '13 at 6:44

I love that this is available. However, I'm thinking that, as a "Hall of Fame", it should also list the name of the contributor and the title of the photo?

I guess, as this is a community wiki, I could do that myself, but I don't want to do it if nobody else thinks it is a good idea.

[This might be the wrong thread -- as there turn out to be a dozen questions related to the photo of the week -- apologies if it is the case.]

I don't know if this is discussed before, but I severely dislike the border around the "Photo of the week".

I like this way more:
