White House Ruin, Canyon de Chelly

Canyon de Chelly National Park, Arizona

This picture reminds me of the value of making repeated trips to a location to gain familiarity with the light. It took me several trips to Canyon de Chelly and the White House Ruin to learn at what time of day and what time of year the sun illuminates the distinctive white clay the ancient puebloans used on the upper house structures that give this ruin its name. During the peak of summer and during morning and early afternoons the upper portions of the ruin do not receive direct sunlight. But during winter when the sun is lower on the horizon, and especially late in the afternoons, the sun spotlights the white clay on the upper structures. Ansel Adams famously photographed the White House Ruin in the 1930s using black and white film but even Ansel was not the first European American, observing that he must have had his tripod set in the tripod holes of Timothy O'Sullivan, who first photographed the White House Ruin in 1873 using wet plate materials. I love the colors of this picture, especially set against the vibrant stripes of canyon varnish, and the whimsical pictograph climbing figure visible on the canyon wall below the ruins. These ruins are 50 feet above the present canyon floor, and the walls have climbing holes, worn smooth over the 5,000 years since the canyon was first inhabited.
