In the shadow of the sun at San Rafael, La Cueva, NM. Today’s photo is from the rear side of the church in yesterday’s photo of the day. I thought I would complete the experience we encountered in this beautiful location. I could post the third photo from that day of a Prairie Rattler, near this spot, that warned me to be aware, but you can see that image here on Facebook. Thanks for looking. G
San Rafael La Cueva New Mexico. Pulled up at the church to the thrill of the reflection in a storm puddle. The standing water has always been there after the rains but the grass was so long and it was merely a swampy mess. On this trip the grass was mown and the reflection almost resembled glass. Thanks for looking. G
Hollyhocks at the Salman Raspberry Ranch Store, La Cueva, New Mexico. The color makes them look almost delicious enough to eat, like the raspberry chocolate they sell in the store just over my shoulder. Yes… we purchased some raspberry fudge, it didn’t make it home. Later, when reviewing the image, I thought they looked as if they were ponying up the bar! Thanks for looking. G
San Rafael, La Cueva, NM. The church of San Rafael in La Cueva New Mexico. We took a drive today through the mountains to Mora and beyond. Gorgeous clouds, light, color and buckets of rain. The return trip through the Moreno Valley, Eagle Nest and Red River was capped of with heavy sky, thunder and lightning, and torrential sideways rain. Thanks for looking. G
Patina on the old mill door. I made this image a number of years ago. I find great pleasure in spending some quality time, with a good beer or a nice glass of whiskey, browsing the hard drives, revisiting images I passed over on first viewing. Sometimes I throw a virtual dart in the form of a four digit suffix (the original image number from the camera), in this case “1191” to see what reveals itself. Yesterday this old door attracted my attention, so here it is. This door belongs to the old mill in La Cueva, New Mexico.
