Ute Mountain Field, Colorado

Ute Mountain field and pivot irrigator. I’m told it’s a field of the lowly canola oil plant, rapeseed! Ok … it was still a bright, sight of a surprise to encounter in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. The horizon and hedgerows held back this surprise view until we made a left turn at a four way stop intersection, headed east toward the Sangre de Cristos mountains, to a point where the road rose slightly revealing, Ute Mountain, the pivot irrigator and the field. Surprises every where out there. Thanks for looking. G

San Cristobal Chapel Rainbow

San Cristobal Chapel Rainbow. The other end of the rainbow from last night’s image which was made shortly after this one when the sun returned to the skies. The torrential rains rutted the road in places, filled the ditches and deposited rusty tin cans from ancient dumping grounds in the woods. When it rains historical artifacts rise to the surface. Thanks for looking. G

San José De Gracia De Las Trampas

San José de Gracia de Las Trampas on the High Road to Taos. Las Trampas is always a wonderful place to visit. Such a peaceful place. Although there are many images of this church on the web, and is immortalized by thousands of photographers, I am continually amazed more often than not, that I have the place to myself. Thanks for looking. G
