and yes Ed, now that you mention it, the last one is pretty under-saturated. I blame shooting into the harsh AZ sun As I was shooting, I realized that this type of shooting really requires a polarizer to get right.
It is a very neat place, and well worth the visit, although I'd suggest a winter visit. There are lesser ruins in the area that are well worth a look too. They were built on the edges of very neat canyons. This is a hard land in which to eek out a living.
