Ancient Sacred Mystical Mesa by whitehotphoenix Ancient Sacred Mystical Mesa by whitehotphoenix
The sunrise on our first morning set the bar exceptionally high for the other days on our high mesa trip in Abiquiu, New Mexico, but some how the high mesas kept pushing the envelope on the very definition of natural beauty. With scenes this infinitely entrancing, the southwestern artist Georgia O'Keefe felt she could not be separated with this land and had her ashes spread atop El Pedernal's narrow flat peak. We shared similar sentiments when trying to separate ourselves from this place a week later.

Beautiful photo!

I'm not sure if you know (or care) but the full-size image is available for download!

It's a beautiful photo so some people might steal it because of that. :P

Hi there! So glad you like our photo. :)

I appreciate your concern re: stealing but I am not worried about it. If a company steals it, I'll sue. If an individual steals it and claims the creation for their own... they need psychological help and they are not likely to get very far in the art world. Thus, I will not punish my viewers by scaling down my quality or using watermarks. I believe in trust and so far any instance of theft that I have come across I've treated with kindness and the offending party has gracefully accepted my requests for removal, credit, or payment.
