North Arches on San Xavier Misson
The photograph was taken near the spot Ansel Adams took his well-known photograph of the mission, on the backside of the mission away from the famous entrance and towers. I found the elements of the statue, the newly-renovated west tower in the background, and the larger archway to be compelling, and attempted several compositions until I found this.
