Adobe Wall with Green Door, Pena Blanca by 


The adobe-walled courtyard with street access is typical of southwestern U.S. architecture. Doors are often painted in bright colors and it is not unusual to see adornments of skulls, horns, or fanciful handmade ornaments representing desert flora or fauna. In this case, we have a set of horns and a tin lamp shade that has been decorated with a punched design depicting a quarter moon. The sunset is a transplant from another photo. This courtyard and door can be found in Pena Blanca, New Mexico, on state highway 22. The photo is an HDR merge performed in PSP XII. Taken with a Pentax K20D.

    I love, love, love the colours in this work…………

    Truly a wonderful southwestern flavour you have captured here Mitch!!!!

  • I tried several skyscapes and this one best seemed to compliment the warm adobe. As always, thanks very much for your comments, Rose.
