This to me gives this sacred place the feel I was looking for. It is in northwestern New Mexico in the Four Corners area where New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and Utah all meet and is a very sacred place to the Navajo people.

    I’m glad that you enjoy this, as I said it has special meaning for the Navajo people and I have listened to a bit of the stories from some of the Navajo people I have worked with up in this part of New Mexico and I wanted to try and make this place make people feel the rock and maybe the spirits here. At least in my own Anglo way.

    Aaamazing! Great photo, you have really captured a sense of desolation and peace, but there seems so much hope in that path to the awesome rock formation.
