House On Fire by Chuck Coburn


I spent the month of May on the Colorado Plateau with a group of six
photographers. This is one of my favorite images - House On Fire. 

After a 1.2 mile hike in to the South Mule Canyon and a climb up the 
canyon wall we arrived at a large ledge. The ledge has a grainery 
built by the Anasazi about 1000 years ago and is unrestored. Having 
arrived we had to wait about an hour or so for the sun to hit a 
ledge and reflect up to the overhang. Once that happened it was just 
a matter of shooting the spectacular scene before our eyes.

Image was taken 5/13/2014 with Nikon d70s,at f/4.5, 22mm, 1/800 sec.

What an amazing place the Southwest is when you spent that much time
there and get to know and appreciate it.
