Chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Cañon, Taos

Chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Cañon, Taos NM. One cross many shadows. This little chapel is adorned with at least nine crosses on the outside. If one counts them and all the shadows, then I’m sure this is a very blessed place, and iconic New Mexicana. Always a favorite stop on a photo tour. Thanks for looking. G

Chapel, Talpa, New Mexico

Chapel of Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos Talpa, New Mexico. Time of day and more importantly the time of year, in this case, helped create the resulting image. At this time of year the sun is almost at it’s most southerly. The sky was overcast and the light on the scene was very diffused when we arrived, on this second day of a three day grand tour. I’d already framed up the three black crosses on the chapel, and as I settled on the final composition the sun emerged momentarily from behind the clouds and the little shadow from the cross on the left popped out. The shadow added a further element to a scene I’d pre-visualized, without any more preparation than just showing up at the location. Always prepared to be amazed … thanks for looking. G
