Thanksgiving morning, Sangre De Cristo mountain sunrise, San Cristobal New Mexico. It’s not always like this, but recently we’ve had some wonderful sun rises that make you want to get up out of bed and go outside! This was about 6:15 this thanksgiving day morning and it was a pleasure to be present. Thanks for looking. G
Winter Trees and Crescent Moon, The last few nights have been wonderful for watching the waxing moon. The temperatures are quite temperate adding to sky watching pleasure. And really… we don’t have to go to far, just step out on to the deck and look west. When it does eventually chill down there’s always a little whiskey and my lovely woman Pami. Thanks for looking. G

Jemez Mountains sunset and crescent moon from San Cristobal, NM. I made this three image vertical stitched panorama of the sunset over the mountains. The sunset was fading fast, so when I found I couldn’t fit in the whole scene with the lens I had on the camera, rather than run into the house to change lenses, I used what I had. One, two, three and this beautiful scene was in the can. Thanks for looking. G
Jemez Mountains Sunset, Crescent Moon 5127
Beautiful sliver of a crescent moon with earthshine tonight, from San Cristobal New Mexico. I love the surprise and flutter in my chest that occurs when I see the crescent moon in the western sky at sunset. I’ve observed it so many times and still it continues to amaze me every time. I hope it does for you too! Thanks for looking. G
Staircase to the top Santa Fe, New Mexico. A lot of times I’m walking down the road and look to my right or left and simply make an image. This one is from a few years ago for a story on ghost tours in Santa Fe. Looks a little spooky, right? Also it looks like it doesn’t go anywhere.
Today I’ve added a new feature to my website called “My Musings” I will be offering these free PDF downloads for your enjoyment, viewing pleasure and inspiration. Please feel free to share with your family and friends or on social media. As always thank you for looking. Geraint.
Great Blue Heron in flight, Bosque del Apache. I hope you’ll indulge me with a few more posts from the National Wildlife Refuge. This bird obliged by flying alongside the car. It was fun to watch it’s effortless flight and steadfast purpose. It fooled me at the last, as it banked swiftly to its right and over the car. Thanks for looking. G
Javelina Tribe, on the road in Bosque Del Apache. I’ve only ever seen a single Javelina in the past. These were a few of a larger tribe on this day in the National Wildlife Refuge. They came out of the brush, went into the brush, came back out of the brush and returned to the brush one more time, and then they were gone! Thanks for looking. G
