new mexico—part 4

On our penultimate day in Santa Fe, we drove out to Bandelier National Monument to see the cave wall dwellings and take a nice hike. (The weather out there was amazing.) It was also a great opportunity for me to get my inner Ansel Adams on. The contrast of the sky and those geological structures made for a few pretty strong photos. The one I want to highlight is up front, a shot that emphasizes the size and scale of the cliffside. I haven't received my negatives yet—I sent these photos off to be developed by my lab—but when I do, that is the first one I'm taking to the darkroom.
