The Cross

Description

This sculpture is located at the Shrine of the Stations of the Cross in San Luis, Colorado. The cross is situated at the top of a huge hill. There is a steep trail that meanders its way up the hill. At regular intervals along the path are beautifully carved bronze sculptures depicting the various stations of the cross. Reaching the top is quite a workout. It is meant to be that way so that the pilgrimage effort can be used as an offering of penance.

Powerful image, Marlon. Excellent comp, pov, b&w, and the sky adds so much to the dramatic feeling. #1711039
