This tiny chapel is on Highway 93 near White Hills, Arizona, about 30 miles south of the Hoover Dam, and it was a site for a very small wedding (with just the minister and the couple inside while the witnesses standing outside the door) the weekend before I took this photo.

Lovely image of this chapel. I like the way you have framed this with the cactus in the foreground for Arizona flavored shot.

indeed a very small chapel. I like when you add the tree on the left side which is even more beautiful against fabulous blue sky. I like it. Tfs.

Quite a small chapel indeed well framed by this cactus tree. The light gives good colors and sharpness. I remember seeing those giant cactus trees when I was in AZ in the 80's.

I enjoyed your note and I enjoy the photo. The building is very peculiar, rather cute actually, and you found a perfect foreground. The colors are great and there is a superb clarity to the composition.

a curious concept and an intriguing seeting for a wedding. Your composition is excellent, it provides a precise and interesting description of the chapel and its surroundings. You have even included the space where the witnesses would stand trying to overhear and waiting to congratulate the newly weds:) Clarity is excellent all over the view, in the shade as well. The light is splendid and the colours vivid and pleasant. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

that´s exactly how I (and not only I, but many people in Europe, I suppose) imagine the "West" to be.
Maybe you should have included a bit more of the tree instead of the red/white barrier thing on the right. On the other hand, this thing makes the scenery even more unique.

The cactus is framing well the chapel. The point of view is showing the détails and colors of the architecture of the chapel. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

A real special story of that wedding where the witnesses couldn't enter the chapel.
But it's a very beautiful wooden chapel and you took it from a good angle, with the desert tree (a cactus ?) on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul

Interesting shot the way I see it that tiny cute chapel is almost dwarfed by the tree! A fresh bright morning light under that spotless blue sky and so very well managed exposure. Just a simple beauty there, clean and neat and the juxtapostion is perfect to keep into perspective. Excellent capture. Congrats, TFS.
