    Santuario de Chimayo At Sunset (Artified)

    Santuario de Chimayo At Sunset

    Last weekend, my parents and I took a wonderful morning ride that rolled over into a full day trip, bringing us from Albuquerque to Jemez Pueblo, and then from there on up to Soda Dam, and then a drive through and stop at various points in and around the Valles Caldera National Park. Hungry after, as the afternoon was winding down, we went for dinner at Rancho de Chimayo, and then, due to my folks’ kindness, made a last long stop at Santuario de Chimayo, the National Historic Landmark and pilgrimage site, so I could take some photos of it.

    When we arrived at the church, the sun was entering the golden hour in a big way, and the church grounds were absolutely empty. Those conditions made taking photos of the site a truly enchanting experience.

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.

      First of all… Soda Dam!! I haven’t thought about Soda Dam in years!!
      I think I ate some of the hottest green chile of my life one year at Rancho de Chimayo.
      And, those golden hour photos… ah.
