How about this image of the Milky Way galaxy seemingly breaking through cloud cover at Arizona’s Monument Valley as captured by Gavin Heffernan of Sunchaser Pictures? This is actually an image from their incredible timelapse video “YIKAISDAHA” (Which I believe is Navajo for “That Which Awaits Dawn” or “Milky Way”). The video was shot on location at Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park as well as the Grand Canyon National Park and a few other select locations around the local area in between giving long exposure photography lectures at Northern Arizona University.
Monument Valley is a place that I would certainly recommend to anyone for a getaway, road trip or vacation. It’s a fantastic vacation stop and a top bullet point on the bucket list. The valley is part of the Colorado Plateau and resides on the Arizona/Utah state line in close proximity to the four corners. It’s a collection of buttes that stretch up to 1000 ft. high and take on many different amazing shapes.
I really hope you enjoy this image and video and if you do, go check out more of Gavin’s works as they are just amazing.
