Puebloan Ceremonial Kiva – Aztec National Monument

This is an ancient Pueblo Kiva that was used for community gatherings and religious ceremony in the old days and is still considered to be sacred to modern Pueblo people. The site is located in the heart of Farmington, New Mexico.  This was a very hard image to capture with the low-light and all the traffic coming and going through the Kiva. In the old days, there were no stairs into the Kiva. You have to descend down a latter through an entrance in the ceiling or a window. The Kiva served as a church and I try to show respect when I visit such sites.

Sunset Over the Pacific – Southern California

The ocean has always humbled me when I visit the West Coast. It’s quite spooky and mysterious at the same time. I still believe that in the deep waters lays the creatures of myth. Who knows what’s out there? The Earth is a beautiful place and I have respect for that which is much more powerful than me.

Midday in Apache Junction

The Sonoran Desert is the most beautiful desert in the Southwest in my opinion. It’s quiet and thought provoking. Not to mention it has some of the most exotic succulents and cactus species. All is peaceful in Southern Arizona.
