False Kiva Stars

The False Kiva is set in a shallow cave with a large arched opening on the side of a cliff face. This kiva is nothing more than a circular rock wall about two feet tall and fifteen feet in diameter positioned at the opening of the cave. This image was taken from the backside of the cave looking out over the kiva and showing the spectacular view of desert cliffs, buttes and mesas fading into the distance. What really adds to the appeal of this image is the time of day it was taken. It is well past sunset, but there is still blue in the mostly clear sky and many stars are shining in it.
