White Bridge. A car crosses the Taos Junction bridge over the Rio Grande, it’s headlights illuminate the girders with the Milky Way overhead. Here is the Bridge in Red illuminated by the tail lights of a vehicle. Both in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar, New Mexico, and under the starry skies of the Milky Way.
Coyote stalking prey moving through the lava rocks, sage and cholla cactus early one morning in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar, New Mexico. It paused numerous times to briefly acknowledge our presence, loped off, and continued its foraging between rocks and sage only to perch on another rock with a good vantage point and make eye contact again. Moving adeptly, confidently, over the unstable terrain the coyote swiftly gained ground and left us watchers in its wake as it crossed the road ahead and vanished in to the red willows along the Rio Grande.
Target practice New Mexico style. The practice of shooting at road signs while driving by. This sign on the road from Pilar to Carson, has been replaced since I made this image. For now the new sign stands pristine, warning of the upcoming hairpin turn. Somewhere in my portfolio of images I have a whole series of road signs full of gunshot. I’ll let you know how this particular sign is doing when I drive by next time. Thanks for looking. G
