The Wupatki Ruins - there are actually several sets of ruins - lie northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona, and not too far from massive Sunset Crater. Humans probably moved into the area not long after the eruption, in the 11th Century AD.
Sometimes I don't need to photograph an overall scene. And I didn't want to this day, because skies were gray, which I think made a poor backdrop for the ruins Instead, I concentrated on closer subjects. Most of the time at Wupatki, l employed a borrowed 180mm f/2.8 lens.
