Description


Taos Pueblo (or Pueblo de Taos) is an ancient pueblo belonging to a Taos-speaking (Tiwa) Native American tribe of Puebloan people. taospueblo.com/about The ancestors of the Taos people lived in this valley long before Columbus discovered America and hundreds of years before Europe emerged from the Dark Ages. taospueblo.com/about The adobe structures are estimated to be over a thousand years old. When the Spanish came to Pueblo country, some assumed they had found their “Cities of Gold” because of the miccaceous mineral found in the clay used for mudding the buildings. Micca, for short, glitters in light therefore the assumption was made by the Spanish. The Adobe structures are mudded every year by owners of the homes or by a designated group of men. The majority of the homes are still owned and maintained by the family. The homes are generally passed down from one generation to the next with, usually, the eldest son being the sole owner. These homes are still used for religious and cultural activities. The homes are the connection to our way of life and to our ancestors. https://taospueblo.com/history/

Excellent photo. I wonder if this place was the inspiration for Tattooine(sp?) in the early Star Wars films?

Richard, I've been absent a lot due to a bad back, but I've seen all your uploads, and I'll try to catch up with a number of them in the next couple of sessions. Wonderful work as always.

I luuuuv the hues in this. The light is gorgeous. It's that late day (or early day) low light. It casts a toasted gold all over everything. And you have a softness here too. That chunk of white in the left-front is wonderful too. This is a beautiful, restful photograph, with softness and an ancient feel. Thanks for the text too, it's very helpful.
