Moon House Ablaze

This image of Moon House complex on Utah’s Cedar Mesa, an ancient cliff dwelling of the Ancestral Puebloan peoples, was achieved by waiting with almost excruciating patience, for that moment when the sunlight would bounce off the canyon walls to light up the sandstone alcove like tongues of fire. This moment lasted less than an hour and is seasonally available. The Moon House complex is estimated to have been built in the early 1200s CE, and is named for its iconic celestial pictograph on an interior wall.
