The Story:

Bonanza Creek Ranch is a movie set just South of Santa Fe.     My favorite building is this old church,  which was  captured right as the sun hit the horizon towards the West.      The mountain  ridges in the  background were  added for effect,  and I changed out the original windmill for one with wood instead of steel piping.         A small lavender effect was added.  The name "Frontier Sanctuary" was suggested by good friend Lynda Paladin.
