Mammatus Clouds Over The Taos Valley

Mammatus clouds over the Taos Valley. A drive by iPhone pano out the window of an afternoon thunder storm bringing hail to some elevations and rain to most places. It was great to see so much standing water where we haven’t seen any for a long time. I left some raw steel for an art project out in the heavy rains and hail to rust. Looking forward to the results tomorrow. In case your wondering, I did make a high resolution panorama of this scene. It will take a little work to put it together matching pixels in the cloud formations. Thanks for looking. G

Mammatus Clouds, The Rio Grande Gorge

Mammatus clouds (Read More) and sun setting at the Rio Grande Gorge, in Taos County, New Mexico.

After a road trip around the block (about 200 miles) yesterday we arrived back at the high bridge, overlooking the Rio Grande Gorge, and were greeted by this wonderful sight. There were some tourists on the bridge with phones doing their thing. The bachelor heard of bighorn sheep were munching alongside the parking lot. We had our intentions set on a fitting image to end our day trip. I like the way the shape of the clouds mirror the shape where the light and shadows meet on the opposite canyon wall. Thanks for looking. G
