Shiprock USA

This spot was one of the highlights during my last travel to the US. Its located in the far Northwest of New Mexico, near the City of Farmington.
Its the spot for the sunset, i will upload a second spot for the sunrise.

Travel information

There is a dirt road exit from the main road (map) but i wouldn`t call it even dirt road, its not easy to drive, a lot of deep bumps.
Don`t come too late, i was a little bit in a hurry as i under estimated the travel time , even from the main road it took you some time . no parking there, but you can stop anywhere. Don`t get to close to the rock itsself its sacred by the navajos.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

I've been there twice but on the other side near the corral. This shot is MUCH more interesting.

Thanks a lot Manuel, I really highly recommend this spot. No other people in the whole area while I was there. This is also a spot you haven't seen a million times on the Internet.

Yeah, very true... when I just saw this image there was no way for me, that this one isn't included in our newsletter on Wednesday. Really stunning spot + perfect photographic execution buddy!
