The Chimayo Sanctuary

The Story:

For years  I didn't pay  enough  attention  to Santuario de Chimayo.   I was too enamored with the  great restaurant a couple of blocks to the north - Rancho de Chimayo. But eventually  I "saw the light",  and  in this case it happened on July 28, 2016 at 7:45 p.m. Moments later, the sun was down and the magical light was gone.  This image is made for canvas, and yet some people still like it best on infused aluminum.
