Ant hill in the field in San Cristobal this evening. I love to watch them grow in their individual perfection. I included the elements of the landscape for scale and location. I spotted this particular ant hill this evening and put the camera on the ground to include some sky for balance. Thanks for looking. G
Swainson’s Hawk, San Luis Valley, Colorado. We stumbled across this beautiful creature and made a few images while it let me know, in no uncertain terms, that I was encroaching on it’s nesting territory. There were many hawks this day and any approach seemed to entice them from the nest, to abandon the chicks in order to distract us intruders. We moved on and left them to their familial duties.
Our Lady Of Guadalupe shrine at the Santuario de Chimayo New Mexico. This is a scene I photographed in 1984. In the late 1980’s I created a series of polaroid transfer images. This is a scan of the original “emulsion transfer” process produced on “Arches” water color paper. I think the process lends itself well to the subject matter. Thanks for looking. G

Rio Grande del Norte National Monument at the Taos Junction Bridge in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area section. I’ve used this image as a photo of the day previously but if the proverbial you know what hits the fan we could loose some 27 National Monuments.
The status of 27 U.S. national monuments is being reconsidered. Leading nature photographers have created a free ebook to show you the beauty that’s at risk. See this spectacular land. Then raise your voice to save it.
I am one of the featured photographers. Check it out and thank you for looking
