Last light, El Salto Rocks. This is a prominent landmark that the light seems to seek it out on purpose. If you are visiting here and driving north through Taos you will see this landmark feature and know it immediately. Here is another image from years ago and one more with this feature of the landscape on the far right. Thanks for looking. G
An evening pastoral scene in the meadows, (El Prado) on the north side of Taos. I can always be persuaded by the quiet nature of this pastoral scene, to pull over, get out of the car, breathe in the air, soak up the atmosphere, and make an image of what I felt, not always what I see. Thanks for looking. G
Full “Strawberry Moon” rising over El Salto Peak in the Sangre de Cristos, Taos New Mexico. It got very quiet this evening, a kind of eerie silence as the moon peaked over the ridge. No dog, bird, or coyote sounds, as if the whole neighborhood stood still and paid attention. G
El Salto Rains. I have often seen the rain falling on El Salto and Lucero Peaks when it looks like this. The peaks give scale to the columns of rain as they march steadily on in some perceptible purpose through the rock formations to the high Sangre de Cristos beyond. Thanks for looking. G
A two day storm left snow on the peaks around Taos County. The clouds lifted momentarily, to reveal the light on the rocks of El Salto peak.
