Sangre de Cristo Mountains New Mexico

The Sangre de Cristo mountains grab me every time. Today was special. The mountains seemed to occupy a secondary role in the composition, that of giving scale to the expanse of the sky. Of course, it wasn’t long before I began to look deeper in to the scene, exploring the details of the clouds and their relationship to the mountain ridges. The negative spaces created by the valleys, intrigued me even further. Those more abstract images I will keep for another day.  The initial scene made me pull over, the details kept me looking. The music that was playing, in the warm interior of the car, enhanced by the surrounding beauty of the landscape and sky increased my sense of well being today. Thanks for looking. G
