Im not going to tell anyone where this is. It took me a year of planning for my holiday. All ill say is this is on no map. After getting to the local town i had to drive 46 miles. Find an un marked trail. Walk in %85 degree heat on my own, got lost, walk down a cliff, one small step out of place and im dead, waited for two hours, etc etc to get this. Still, as its captured in camera with only a little dodge and burn im sure it will do nothing in photographic competitions.

Great location! The hut circle (I assume it's not an animal enclosure if it's half way down a cliff!) is not only good foreground interest by shape and texture but adds a lot of extra intellectual interest to the image, makes one curious like IrishKate said and keept me looking a lot longer than without it. The isolated pinacle and the rain storms add drama. This really paid off all your hard work and planning.

If I had a constructive criticism it would be that it may be worthwhile spending overnight there so you could see what it looks like with low angled light in the golden hours to add more relief to the mid ground. Logistically that might not be possible though and I think anyone would be exceptionally proud of this image. Have you thought about sending it into National Geographic since it has the story of the man-made structure and the story of the photographer attached to it?

I am going to hazzard a guess it was taken somewhere around the Islands in the sky area of Utah maybe somewhere in the Upper West Basins?..........or maybe in the San Rafael desert?

These brick circle formations are the remains of old Navajo dwellings the image you have taken is on one of the caves just near John ford canyon . You can get guides to take you up into these places they are very ritual sites which are sometimes used to bury recently deceased family members of the local Navajo tribe in Utah monument valley so I hope treaded very carefully great image with loads of potential this image would do well on a high gloss print from bpd photech in national level competitions .
