Great light and shade. Adobe makes for beautiful buildings and there is a nice contrast here between its soft curves and the hard edged roof, cross and gutter

PS re yesterday, the ones we stayed in stored hay so they made comfortable mattresses for our sleeping bags :)

@grouser: That sounds really nice and a wonderful place to sleep until that angry farmer came along!

Love the colour toning here. Reminiscent of a spaghetti western.

The white cross against the dark sky is very effective. It makes one look at it almost automatically. Very effective picture.

Before I scrolled to the title I thought - this looks like Santa Fe or Taos. Those old adobe churches are amazing.
