Alamosa Railyards, Colorado

Ghostly drapes on the “Minnesota Zephyr, Stillwater Carriage” in the Alamosa Railyards, Colorado. It is eerie to walk between the carriages and see the remnants from a bygone era. I can imagine the travelers on the train looking out the windows as the scenery went by, their eyes full of wonder, where ever they were heading. Here are more details on the train from Wikipedia. Thanks for looking. G

Wild Horses, Southern Colorado

A band of wild horses and foal in southern colorado. A month earlier when first spotted, on a photo tour, the foal could only have been two or three days old. Two days ago, exactly one month since the first encounter with the band, we observed a very healthy young foal thoroughly at ease with the cold temperatures and keeping up with the band. A delight to see as foals born here in the wild, in winter, have a slim chance of survival. Thanks for looking. G

A Bend In Rio Chama, Abiquiu, NM

At a bend on the Rio Chama in Abiquiu NM. A warm and clear winters day. I love the subtle colors of a New Mexico winter. I can honestly say I love winter photography excursions. For one thing I am mostly alone with my thoughts and camera. With no distractions and when the mind clears the images come. This image actually accounts for 1/1000 of a second of my day. The rest of the time was spent in a form of meditation of which this image is the appreciation of that moment. Thanks for looking. G

Remnants of authenticity

New Work. “Remnants”

 

From the Taos Art Museum FaceBook page …. 

The Fechin Studio is proud to present the photographs of Geraint Smith, hanging now through April. The exhibition, entitled “Out and About”, showcases Geraint’s ability to capture the iconic images of Northern Mexico and Southern Colorado.

Geraint quotes Dewitt Jones, “The banquet is spread constantly, with no thought of whether anyone will attend. If I were receptive enough, perhaps I would see it in everything. But I’m not, so photography is one of the tools I use to help me concentrate, to help me see deeply, to block out all that is extraneous and see that which is essential.”

From The Red Willows To The Mountain

From the red willows to the mountain. Taos Mountain. One of the most gorgeous views of the sacred mountain, and home of the “Red Willow People” Taos Pueblo. The snow was an added bonus when the clouds cleared this afternoon and the welcomed moisture. Thanks for looking. G

Ice Patterns On The Rio Chama

Ice patterns on the Rio Chama, Abiquiu New Mexico. Exploring, seeking, and open to receiving. Following are some words close to my heart from photographer Dewitt Jones. “The banquet is spread constantly, with no thought of whether anyone will attend. If I were receptive enough, perhaps I would see it in everything. But I’m not, so photography is one of the tools I use to help me concentrate, to help me see deeply, to block out all that is extraneous and see that which is essential.”

Cerro Pedernal, Abiquiu Lake

Cerro Pedernal (Georgia O’Keeffe’s mountain) through the rock pools at Abiquiu Lake. Always on the look out for new views everywhere… putting the camera on the ground reveals a composition I hadn’t discovered before. I like to look at the creations of painters and sculptors as my main inspiration. Perhaps I’ll take up painting one day soon… the studio is already full with pieces of sculpture. I’m very fortunate to be continually connected, daily, to the natural environment. I am nature! Thanks for looking. G

Dawson Cemetery, Colfax County, New Mexico

Dawson cemetery, in Colfax County, New Mexico. Dawson was the site of two separate coal mining disasters in 1913 and 1923. Dawson is located about 17 miles northeast of Cimarron, New Mexico. The township is gone but the cemetery remains. Growing up in a mining community in south Wales in the UK, it can be very moving to see the grave markers of the hundreds who died in two extreme mining accidents in this former township. I made this image last August when the afternoon sunlight through the thunderstorms and sunflowers accompanied the white grave markers of those killed in the two separate disasters. Thanks for looking. G
