his image was taken at Mission San Jose in San Antonio, Texas. The vertical panorama views the arches of the Convento of the Mission, which was the residential area of the compound. This wonderful series of arches is striking against the roofless blue sky above. Near the upper-middle of the image the view looks directly up, under the bottom of one of the arches, with the noon-day sun hovering just above it. Near the top can be seen the ivy-covered wall behind.
This photograph won first place in the photography media category in the New Braunfels Art League's 2005 juried fine art show, Artfest.
Though this image is substantially larger than the previous thumbnail image you clicked, it has still been extremely reduced in resolution and clarity to allow you to easily see it over the Web. As stated elsewhere on this site, the actual image file is huge, and a large, final printed image will have finer details than the human eye can resolve at a normal viewing distance of 18 inches (click here for information on prints). In general, the beauty of the full-size print can barely be hinted at by the images displayed here.
Please note the title and catalog number of any images that interest you, so you can contact me about them (you can use your computer's "copy & paste" function to avoid typing errors).
