Cottonwood tree and Sandhill Cranes, in the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, San Antonio, NM. Looking forward to the next three days here. Stay tuned and thanks for looking. G
Stand of Red Willows, Taos, New Mexico. Taos Pueblo are the “people of the red willow” … I like that, and there is an abundance of red willow across the Taos Valley. Thanks for looking. G
Muted and subtle colors of fall and moisture on the deck in San Cristobal, NM. The leaves… ash, aspen, locust, cottonwoods and apple are piling up and as the temperatures drop the vibrant colors turn cooler. Each morning is an affirmation of winter’s approach and a promise of springs rejuvenation. Yes I love the cool down and slow down at this time of year. Thanks for looking. G
Taos Junction on the Rio Grande. Another beautiful day again today in northern New Mexico. This image made from the Taos Junction Bridge in the Orilla Verde RA in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, is one of my favorite locations. This location always continues inspire me when I pull over and park by the river. Fall is in full swing here in northern New Mexico. Drop in if you can, we’ll be glad to show you around and share this great part of the American southwest with you. Thanks for looking. G
Red aspen leaves. I see it there, on the bench under the aspen tree, two leaves together. That’s fall after all. Thanks for looking. G
Arroyo Hondo rainbow and a half. The last storm made for some nice images of rainbows and fall colors. Most of the aspens up high are done until next time, so it’s up to the cottonwoods to do their thing now. I’ll be watching and as always, thanks for looking. G
Turquoise and fall colors on the high road to Taos. Drive any road in northern New Mexico right now and the light and colors will amaze you, as will the skies. Throwing in some quirky ‘New Mexicana’ will make the day! Thanks for looking. G
Mullen And Aspen, Us Hill, NM. On the High Road to Taos photo workshop today, stopping at all the fall color ‘photo ops’. There are many. This is a field of mullen with asters, flanked by aspen, scrub oak and chamisa.
Thanks for looking. G
Aspen Grove, Colorado. In the rain on the Cumbres Pass today the colors of the aspen groves were glowing through the stark white ghostly tree trunks. Thanks for looking. G
Highway 17, aspens turning in Colorado. Took a drive today over the Cumbres Pass on Highway 17 to check out the aspen colors. We found many groves turning to shades of yellow, gold and red. There are still many green groves, and then there are many groves that, in the words of the band the Eagles, are “already gone”! Thanks for looking, and if you are in New Mexico, get out there over the next week for some prime colors. G
High desert farming in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. Center pivot irrigation fields dissect the space between earth and sky. They are a stark contrast between the subtle fall colors of the high desert landscape and circular fields. Thanks for looking. G
Granite Fall Color. While the aspens and cottonwoods in the high country and Taos Valley are only hinting at fall, the more intimate locations like this crevice in the granite, on the road to Taos Ski Valley, were showing more signs of color and what’s to come. Thanks for looking. G
Golden Aspens Monarch Pass, Colorado. On the road today in southern Colorado we came across this grove of golden aspens. We were very surprised to see the tree colors turning… fall is upon us! Thanks for looking. G
The storm left a rainbow in it’s wake across the fields to the mountain. A great location for sky watching in El Prado, NM.
Taos Mountain Meadows
Baca Park is a small but vital park – wetlands in Taos. In the past I have photographed Hawks and Kingfishers, Red-winged Blackbirds, Great-tailed Grackles, Mallards, Frogs and Toads. A location in town, with a view of Taos Mountain, it can be a beautiful peaceful environment, and a great place for a morning walk. There is also ample opportunity for some great wildlife and nature images.
