Highway Sky, Taos, New Mexico. I wanted to create a feeling of what it was like driving in to the Taos Valley today. The highway was highlighted by reflected light from the distant cumulus clouds. The foothills were backlit and very dark. The cumulus clouds were lit by the sun shining above the storm clouds overhead, giving an indication how low the storm clouds really were. And then… the skies opened up and it just now stopped raining here in San Cristobal, five hours later. Thanks for looking. G
Storm across the Plateau. Looking across the Taos Volcanic Field, a storm is brewing. Soon this is the way it will be in northern New Mexico, and it will bring snow. But not today. G
Highway, Ocate, NM. Big storm lots of rain, green as green can get where the Rockies meet the Plains. It was worth getting wet to be out there with the scent of damp earth, wet grass, and me, and the mullein plant standing sentry, silently, dutifully along both sides of the highway. Thanks for looking. G
San Cristobal Valley Rainbow. Stepped out this evening and thought to myself about how far do I really need to go, from this place I call home, to find beauty? I think I will stay right here. Thanks for looking. G
Storms Across The Plateau. Shafts of sunlight play tag with the shadows coursing across the northern New Mexico landscape. Thanks for looking. G
Dragon cloud over the Hondo Mesa, Taos, NM. Yes… this dragon cloud cruised across the skies over the mesa this evening. I was playing with the shadow adjustments in photoshop and found this creature flying through the sunset. Thanks for looking. G
Rainbow over anthill in San Cristobal, NM. When I get down low enough I can see how even the smallest creatures get a view of a rainbow with the rest of us.
Ute Mountain storm, northern New Mexico. This lone mountain on the Taos Volcanic Plateau has it’s own weather systems and it is always fun to watch the storms move through. Thanks for looking. G
Pivot Irrigator, Fort Garland, in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. When driving around the west, on the lookout for jaw dropping scenes to photograph, and add to the portfolio, sometimes I stop for an image that just happens to be there. In fact, when I look back through the years I find that I stop for a lot of images that “just happen to be there.” Over all the miles I’ve traveled, these images fill in the blanks, and connect the dots on the map I’ve created over the years. Thanks for looking, G.
Face in the clouds over the Sangre De Cristo mountains, northern New Mexico. Does anybody know this person? I made a number of images of this face cloud developing over the foothills. It amazed me as I watched it happen. Thanks for looking. G
