Mountain Meadow Cottonwood, Taos NM

Mountain meadow cottonwood, Taos NM. Here is a tree, with an arrow on Highway 64 to get your attention in case you didn’t see it. We stopped here today to make some images of this young cottonwood. I’ve been watching it for the last week. Today, it was really glowing with the mountain meadow as a backdrop. This was the second stop on a two day mini photography workshop. I love what I do, I’m very fortunate and grateful. Thanks for looking. G

Bald Eagle, Rio Grande, Cottonwood Tree

Bald Eagle, in a cottonwood tree along the Rio Grande, in Pilar, New Mexico. This image is of the first Bald Eagle spotted this year in the Rio Grande Gorge south of Taos in late November. It was so wonderful to see this bird across the river in the large tree, and, I always wonder if this is one of the eagles I’ve photographed, spending the winters here in previous years. Anyway, it never ceases to excite me when I’m driving along the road through the canyon and there it is! Thanks for looking. G
