Highlands of Scotland, tree, where there are no trees, and seemingly growing out of a rock. Flashback fall to 2013 in the Scottish Highlands. Thanks for looking and a happy thanksgiving. G
Here’s a few images from our last trip to Scotland.
And here is the same tree from the view we first saw.
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
Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado. It’s morning in the wildlife refuge as the fog lifts over the cat-tails on the banks of the marshes, slowly dissipating, to reveal the sanctuary islands beyond. The waterfowl are going through their morning ablutions, primping and preening as the sun warms up the air and the day begins. 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
Two together, down the lane, San Cristobal, New Mexico. Harvest of sunflowers along the roadside a favorite of pine siskins, chickadees and photographers. 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
Lake, in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. The Blanca Peak range, in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of the southern Rockies, makes for a beautiful morning reflection in a small lake in Colorado on a three day photography workshop this week. Thanks for looking. G
Morning blue, Taos Ski Valley. This location was cold and full of fall. This little embankment of grass seemed so delicate and soft and I thought of things to come, frigid temps, snow and ice. For a moment I felt warm and satisfied. 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
Milkweed Seed and Rabbit Brush. Carried on the morning breeze through the neighborhood, the hardy milkweed seed settles on the rabbit brush. Sooner or later the seed will be released from the floss. Thanks for looking. G
Arroyo Hondo, morning sunrise. Life is good in the pastures at sunrise in the Arroyo Hondo Valley. I spent a moment, on the drive to Taos this morning, to stop and watch the horses grazing in the light filtered fields. This is what light traveling at 186,000 miles per second can create. After spending five minutes at this spot I realized that the light had traveled millions and millions of miles when it entered my camera’s lens, passing through, as the shutter opened, to the sensor which helped produce this scene. Yep I love science, and being present to appreciate the moment. Thanks for looking. G
Reflection at the Saint Francis Church … a fall morning after the rain. Got down on my knees and made this image shortly before the caretaker came along and swept up the puddles. Got to be the early bird to beat the caretaker. 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
