Monument Valley in snow

Valley Dusting

At the end of a four-week road trip, Your Shot member Tyler Lekki ran into some bad luck: a flat tire. He stayed the night in a local hotel in Monument Valley National Park in Utah, and his fortunes turned around when he was able to capture this sunrise shot of the park’s towering sandstone buttes after a light coating of snow.
