Moonrise Under Oraibi

Second Mesa, Arizona

On a Windswept Hopi Mesa,
sits the ancient village of Oraibi..
the oldest continuously inhabited
Spiritual Community on the continent..

On the Horizon,
I watched the Sun set.
silhouetting this ancient place,

I glanced in my car mirror and saw
the magnificent Mother Moon
rising behind me.

This was the photographic challenge
of that special evening.
no ‘photoshop magic” with this one…
This photograph is all on one negative.
