Ancient Skies

FL3699

After miles of dirt roads, I finally arrived at the ruins of Chaco Culture. It was this hub of the ancient world that activities such as trading, spiritual events and information exchange took place. And all of these aspects of Chaco Culture operation depended deeply on the sky - day and night. All excavation evidence shows that even the stacked stone building structures were aligned to various celestial events or constants and heavily overshadowed every aspect of daily life.

It was obvious to me early in my exploration that the sky was important for my successful photographic approach as well. The ruins have been untouched for hundreds of years, but the sky was going to be the dynamic element of a winning shot here.

For this shot, I wanted to show this relationship to the sky -“Ancient Skies”.
