Soft Lighting- El Santuario de Chimayó...

Posted on 10 September 2014

If you didn't immediately notice, this is a close-up of the church gates to the El Santuario de Chimayó (pictured in my previous post). The placement of the sun created a nice, soft lighting on the texture of the adobe walls, which translates into a warm, welcoming feel.  .
