Boardwalk, Steps, Bricks, Pink Wall

Boardwalk, Steps, Bricks, Pink Wall. On our trip through southern Colorado and northern New Mexico to check out the aspens, we dropped in at Tierra Wools in Los Ojos, NM, where I spent some time looking around the architecture in the village. I’ll post a few images over the next few days from this sweet outpost known for it’s fiber arts, yarns and sheep round up each spring and fall. Here is the boardwalk at the entrance to Tierra Wools. I thought the colors had a hint of fall to them. G

Highway Sky, Taos, NM

Highway Sky, Taos, New Mexico. I wanted to create a feeling of what it was like driving in to the Taos Valley today. The highway was highlighted by reflected light from the distant cumulus clouds.  The foothills were backlit and very dark. The cumulus clouds were lit by the sun shining above the storm clouds overhead, giving an indication how low the storm clouds really were. And then… the skies opened up and it just now stopped raining here in San Cristobal, five hours later. Thanks for looking. G

Full Moon Rise Tonight San Cristobal, NM

“Nearly” full moon rise tonight over San Cristobal, NM. I stepped out into the cool evening air just when a ghost of a moon rose over the Sangre de Cristo foothills. As “la luna” made it’s way skyward, some clouds moved in creating a mystery around it’s silent ascent. Late tonight the clouds may disperse and the light of the moon will illuminate the whole interior of our house … no night lights needed. Thanks for looking. G

San Jose De Gracia Church, Las Trampas

San Jose de Gracia Church in Las Trampas, New Mexico. I created this composition from three images made on the High Road to Taos from a three day photo tour last week. I wanted to incorporate the three images into one to create some kind of continuum from the day in my mind. This is what I came up with. The church, a painters tarp and a patch of rust from a truck bumper. Thanks for looking. G
