Natures Nicho, Plaza Blanca, White Place

Natures Nicho, in Georgia O’Keeffe’s “White Place” Plaza Blanca, near Abiquiu, New Mexico. At this point in the morning the temperature was still quite bearable, it was cool in the shade and delightful in this eroded space I like to call “nature’s nicho”. Thanks for looking. G

Plaza Blanca Window

Plaza Blanca window in Abiquiu, New Mexico. As the erosion occurs the window opening grows larger continually revealing more of the landscape beyond. Eventually the window will be gone, none of the formations will be the same. In the southwest nothing lasts very long except for the beauty, it remains! G

In Plaza Blanca on a warm fall day, the narrowing slot canyon walls are alternating zones of cool, noticeably moist, air and radiating warm dry air. As one proceeds, the canyon closes in, the growing feeling of solitude embellishes the senses and grounds the body in the womb of the earth. All the while, white cliffs languishing in the sun, under an intense blue sky, draws ones gaze upward.
