Lair of the Spiderwpman

Lair of the Spider Woman by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

In Navajo mythology, Canyon de Chelly (pronounced Canyon de Shay) is the place where humans first emerged into this world. The Spider woman who lives inside the 750 ft tall spire pictured here, is the creator of the world and everything in it. It is said that she took a web she had spun, laced it with dew, threw it into the sky and the dew became the stars overhead.

First Light – Monument Valley

First Light – Monument Valley by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

Dawn arrives at Monument Valley in this view from Hunt's Mesa. It's a long, precarious drive up in a high clearance four wheel drive vehicle, with a Navajo guide, usually done the day before, in order to shoot the sunset, which is also breathtaking. You can overnight, with a five o'clock wake-up in order to dress, grab a cup of coffee, get the camera gear together and trudge out to the northernmost point. It can get pretty cold, depending upon the time of year, and there is usually some fumbling with gloved fingers as you adjust your tripod and the camera controls, getting ready for the shot. This view makes it all worth it.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass. Prices start at $49.00!

Danse Macabre – Pat Kofahl Photography

Danse Macabre – Lucca, Italy by Pat Kofahl on 500px.com

With sincere apologies to Camille St.-Saëns. A street festival in the walled city Lucca, Italy, the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini. Many of the townspeople appeared in spectacular Renaissance costumes. The pageantry was amazing, replete with marching bands in period costumes, strolling troubadours, jugglers, musicians, and a very appreciative crowd of hundreds of onlookers, of which I was but one.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.
