Acoma Pueblo #2

Canon EOS 40D, Canon 17-40mm f4L
1/1250s f/8.0 at 19.0mm iso200

This is what's known as a prayer ladder. It's painted white, and the ends are sharpened to pierce the clouds with the people's prayers. The ladders are used to ascend into the kivas, the holy rooms where the Acoma worship.


  1. I love the pictures that you post. They are always breath taking. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Soooo...maybe if I sharpen my antenna on the roof, my prayers could get through better...hmmmmm
