The winter sun in Sky CIty, Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico, USA reveals the straw in the mud coating on San Estevan Del Rey Mission Church. The church was started in 1630 and is one of few that survived the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. The priests of the mission were not so generously spared. The function of the church in Native American society in the south west is still an interesting issue. The rain has washed off enough of the mud plaster to reveal the straw mixed
The color is the result of the very low winter sun and the natural color of the decaying adobe surface. It was shot with the in camera saturation lowered.
