Plaza Blanca, known as The White Place, a magnificent spot made famous by the series of paintings by Georgia O’Keefe is located in the New Mexico Badlands about 20 miles from Ghost Ranch. This place is filled with limestone obelisks and hoodoos gathered together in groups like small cities. As we hiked down, it had an otherworldly feel as we wandered around these unusual formations. It is a hidden gem and it is no wonder it has captivated artists and photographers over the years.

Very nice! I need to visit there when I go out that way in September.
Thanks, Derrick. You will love it, especially for black and whites.
What a wonderful experience you two are having. The photos are just beautiful. You should put a picture book together and submit it to National Geographic.
What a great compliment, Cathy. Thank you! Glad you are enjoying them. xo
Mother Nature is wondrous!
Yes it is, Wendy. Thanks for your comment!
Limestone Beauty has a cat sculpture dead center. its tail curves to the left and the head appears to be looking in the hole. Mouse maybe? Nice captures, Jane. Truly magnificent!
Sue- I see it! There’s a cat image right in the middle. Great spot. Thanks so much for appreciating these. I loved taking them.
