Penitente Morada In Abiquiu, NM

Penitente Morada, in Abiquiu, NM. I’ve been going through the archives again this week, and found a few images like this one from almost ten years ago. Long before they put up the “No Tresspassing” sign, I would walk up to the building and yes, make and image, but also spend a moment in peaceful tranquility and personal reflection. It’s a stunning location here, where this building sits, overlooking the Rio Chama Valley. I added a couple of links below of the view from here.  Thanks for looking. G

Santa Rosa de Lima, Abiquiu

Santa Rosa de Lima, on the banks of the Rio Chama in Abiquiu, NM. The adobe church was built in 1734, (it says on the sign) and is located just off the highway in the ghost town of Santa Rosa de Lima, about a mile south of Abiquiu. I’ve included some links below to a few more images. Thanks for looking. G

Mission Church of Santo Tomas, Abiquiu, NM

Clouds over the Mission Church of Santo Tomas in the mesa top Pueblo of Abiquiu, New Mexico. I made this image four years ago on a photo tour to Abiquiu, Ghost Ranch and the Chama River Valley and many other locations on the road getting there. The sky on the particular summer afternoon was broken up by these wonderful cloud formations which appear to be whipped up by the very large cross. Thanks for looking. G
