|House on Fire|
This is an amazing sight if you catch it in the right light. It's not actually a house but rather a place where the people stored their grain over 800 years ago.
So how does this place get that blazing appearance? Most importantly, you have to get here at the right time - late morning in the summer or about noon in the fall. We got there at 11:15 am on October 5 and waited a bit before the light was right. You have to catch it when ruin is in shadow, with the sunlight hitting the red rock canyon and reflecting up onto the roof. If you wait too long the sun will directly illuminate the ruin and and wash out the scene.
Here's a shot with Denise in her blazing purple shirt contrasting with the fire:
Here's a view from the side. You can see the entire ruin but the blazing effect is not quite as spectacular.
Time your visit right and you can easily add this photograph to your portfolio.
