Sometimes, I am amused at people's revulsion to the different light one experiences in thin atmosphere at 9000' above sea level vs. the diffused light at low elevations in the thick atmosphere near the coasts. It does indeed represent a challenge for photography! All one can really do is present images as observed with one's eyes. And, a little toleration of unique environments would be appreciated.

I've not been there, so I'm not sure if it's physically possible to include more of the rock, but I'd have liked it better, I think.

It's a lovely chapel in a beautiful place. I wish the light were a tad more expressive, though. The complex texture geometry of the facade are not displayed to advantage.
