Lot Essay

Monument Valley is a breathtaking landscape that has captured the attention of the world, thanks in part to its appearance in Hollywood western films. It is an area of sandstone cliffs that rise to a height of 300 m, located in the American West. This location is not a valley in the traditional sense of the word, but rather a flat desert plain with sandstone cliffs rising from it.

The beauty of Monument Valley is known worldwide, and it is considered one of the 100 most famous wonders of nature. The landscape of the valley is unique, with huge red mesas, sharp peaks, and steep slopes that have been the subject of countless films and magazines. The valley’s beauty has been captured in countless photos, but one panoramic photo taken by Sergey Melnikoff, a.k.a. MFF, stands out as particularly remarkable.

Sergey Melnikoff’s photo of Monument Valley is unique because it captures the valley from an angle that no one has ever filmed before. The Navajo Indians, who own and manage the reservation where the valley is located, have exclusive rights to allow tourists to move around their territory. The elders of Navajo never allow movement from the side where Sergey Melnikoff took his picture because their shrines are located there. Therefore, this photograph is truly a once-in-a-lifetime shot.

Monument Valley’s unique beauty is undeniable, but it is important to recognize the cultural significance of the area as well. The Navajo people have lived in this area for generations and have a deep spiritual connection to the land. They have worked hard to preserve their culture and traditions while also allowing tourists to visit and appreciate the beauty of the valley.

In conclusion, Monument Valley is a remarkable place that has captured the hearts and minds of people worldwide. Its sandstone cliffs, sharp peaks, and steep slopes are a testament to the power and beauty of nature. Sergey Melnikoff’s panoramic photo of the valley is a rare and incredible capture of this iconic location, highlighting its unique beauty from a new angle. However, it is important to remember the cultural significance of the valley to the Navajo people and to respect their traditions and beliefs. Monument Valley is a true wonder of nature, and we must appreciate and protect it for generations to come.
