San Cristobal Sunrise. Every now and again nature nails it. We awoke a couple of mornings ago to the whole house glowing inside from the sunrise light. I wanted to make an image of the interior of the house with the reflected light glancing off walls, windows, furniture and the wood stove. Had I done so, I would have missed this image of the sun rising over the Columbine – Hondo Wilderness out the kitchen window. It wasn’t really a dilemma. Thanks for looking. G
La Luna rising over the Sangre De Cristo Mountains tonight. Some folks think that some kind of warm colored moon at this time of year makes it the”Harvest Moon”. Sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn’t. The color of the moon is insignificant to the fact that it is a “Harvest Moon”. The closest full moon to the fall equinox is the “Harvest Moon”. Ergo, the fall equinox is on or around September 22nd, the October 5 full moon will be the official “Harvest Moon”. That said, EarthSkyNews posted this today regarding tonights moon. Thanks for looking. G
Tipis Free Wifi, in the mountains above Red River. I was on a photo shoot and this scene was in the background. I removed the sign for the image I needed, but couldn’t resist one shot for the fun of it! Thanks for looking. G
Face in the clouds over the Sangre De Cristo mountains, northern New Mexico. Does anybody know this person? I made a number of images of this face cloud developing over the foothills. It amazed me as I watched it happen. Thanks for looking. G
Full “Strawberry Moon” rising over El Salto Peak in the Sangre de Cristos, Taos New Mexico. It got very quiet this evening, a kind of eerie silence as the moon peaked over the ridge. No dog, bird, or coyote sounds, as if the whole neighborhood stood still and paid attention. G
Mesa road to the mountains under a big southwest sky, Taos, New Mexico. Just after a rain shower moved through the area the scent of wet sage filled the air and all was well with the world. At least that is how it felt standing in this little spot on the mesa looking to the mountains. Thanks for looking. G
Ploughed fields in the San Luis Valley. Center pivot irrigator, and beyond spring snow pack on 14,000 foot Blanca Peak along with the Crestone Peaks of the southern Rocky Mountains, Colorado.
Cloud shapes, and it’s a fish, over the Sangre de Cristo foothills Taos New Mexico. I’m guessing it’s a trout, I don’t know all the members of the trout species, brook, cutthroat, steelhead, lake, rainbow … so I’m going with “an old trout in the clouds.” Thanks for looking. G
Mountain storms and snow with heavy rains on the Mesa moved in thick and fast today. Tonight, the sky is clear and the almost full moon is shining like a spotlight.
Ute Mountain twilight, heading home from Colorado, south to San Cristobal, NM this evening. The sight of Ute Mountain is a beacon on the horizon. It acknowledges, that at this point, it’s only forty minutes to home. Not far now!
