Spanish Church

All Saints Chapel, San Luis, Colorado

This desert scene could be mistaken for somewhere in Spain or Mexico, but it is in San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado. The influence of early Spanish settlers can clearly be seen. 


A winding path journeys past bronze statues depicting the Stations of the Cross, one of which can be seen in front of the church.

  3. Angle and composition are very well chosen here. Giving the foreground more space in the frame impressively emphasizes the ‘rocky path to bliss’.

  8. You´ve defined perfectly the influence of the spanish culture in this church in Colorado.
    And I like the first line and the tone and texture of the stone,too.
