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.
