Paiute princess on the sacred Sky petrogylphs

This photo captures a young princess of the Paiute tribe standing atop the sacred Sky petroglyphs at sunrise, which are located somewhere among the volcanic tablelands of Bishop, California. The Paiute tribe keeps the exact location of these petroglyphs hidden from the general public, making this shot particularly special.
