After several years, the west tower renovation was complete and the scaffolding had been removed for photographers to shoot this beautiful mission under floods. This mission was founded by Father Kino and is located on the Tohono O’Odam reservation southwest of Tucson, Arizona, USA. Designated a National Historic Landmark, It has been in existence since the late 1700’s and is still an active church. It has been restored several time. The east tower has yet to be restored, but the economic situation has delayed the start of the project. Photographed with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ 50.
