As Cal says, better late than never:



That's the best one I have.

More pics of my may 2009 trip on Facebook (you don't have to have an account to see them): http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=110807&id=550031773&l=c1b1ed2b09 (I'd like to post them on Flickr but I've reached over 200 pics there, hence, every new image I upload erase an older one).
The album is about Monument Valley, pictures of the arch and around are the last ones.

Doesn't look any different than when I was there in 2006, so that's a good thing.  I believe that location was chosen so Leone could frame the peaks in the background within the arch, than raise the camera over the arch keeping the mountains in frame.  He wanted to show that he really was in Monument Valley USA, on famed John Ford "turf". It was neat for me to know that Leone and Fonda had walked in those same steps.  Anyone know if the crew came through Phoenix or Las Vegas to get there?

I think that the storm in the film on the extreme left side of the screen was a happenstance event, because there's no way to predict that out here, and doubt the crew woud wait for anything like that to occur, too costly to wait.  Those not familiar with the weather here in the West might not realize that a storm like that visible in the distance is real out here.

Yes it was exactly what I expected from the pictures posted here by other members. What is great is that you could still shoot any western scene there, with any camera move you want: apart from the road, there is nothing that wasn't there 200 years ago.

Two other pics (they already were in the facebook album):

You almost see Fonda walking toward the camera here:


And that's somthing you see from the arch, no idea what it looks like when you get closer (I did some color correction on the pic, but i think that was a really black rock):

Absolutely beautiful! O0



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
