Chaco Canyon room and moon. When ever I enter a room in the ancient pueblo ruins in Chaco Canyon, I always look up. The sky encompassed by an aperture of undulating shadows, skillful and meticulously layered stone work, draws my gaze upward to a view that, perhaps, the pueblo inhabitants never had. Ceiling and roof timbers have long since deteriorated leaving only remnants of them protruding out of layers of stone and an open view to the heavens above. Thanks for looking up. G

Wow! That window!
That window did it for me. Thank you for writing Judy. Cheers from Taos. G
I found myself wandering w/ purpose in the space called Chaco Canyon sacred buildings. Ruins is such an unfortunate name because they continue to breathe. My wandering stopped when I felt called to stop in one room. And there I stayed, remembering.
Thanks Jamie. It does draw one doesn’t it. Thank you for taking the time to write and sharing your experience. G
Let us keep on ‘looking up’! 🙂
Thanks Robert, I appreciate the sentiment. G
I really like the “frame within a frame” look of this one, Geraint. For me, the contrasts between the sharp angles of the windows and the softer curve of the shadows create a nice visual tension. Nicely seen!
Thanks Ron. See you soon. Looking forward to the road trip with you, the camaraderie and photography. G
Just awesome in every respect, Geraint. I especially love the window on the lower right!
Thanks Helen, for looking and taking the time to write. Best, G
