LAGUNA, NEW MEXICO
I was worn out from driving so I stopped and switched with my girlfriend/travel mate so she could drive awhile and I could relax. I kept my camera at my feet in the passenger side just "in case" something interesting came along. As the sun was setting, I was mesmerized by the angular light of the on the landscape and saw several interesting compositions worthy of a photo. After taking several, I noticed this small pueblo church approaching on the horizon. I photographed it more and more and it came into view and then a few moments later, came parallel to the car window. I rolled the window down as not to get bug-gut residue in the frame, and snapped. Later on when going to view my photo of "the church on the hill", I gasped. I had not only captured the church on the hill, but a whole town of quaint dwellings where people *live*. A few moments later I noticed a watertower that read LAGUNA, and this is the only way I was able to identify this gorgeous location when retracing my steps.
