Bachelor Rams, Taos Mountain

Bachelor Rams, on the west rim with the Taos mountains as a backdrop. That’s Taos Mountain (Pueblo Peak) on the right, with much needed rain falling directly on the peak. The Bighorn Sheep, all rams, are a band roaming the west rim of the Rio Grande Gorge. If you would like to join me on a photo tour/workshop we will visit all the usual locations and see if we can spot them. The second image shows how close we got to them grazing along the roadside. They seem to enjoy the lush plants that get runoff from the rains on the highway. Thanks for looking. G

Pueblo Peak, Taos Mountain Moonrise

Pueblo Peak, (Taos Mountain) moon rise this evening from US Highway 64. Pull over really quickly at a turnout when the tip of the moon crested the peak. This monthly moment draws people out to watch. Many people pull over to the side of the road and just watch. I’m grateful for this moment every month. If you scroll back through my archives for each month you will see how often I show up and attend this event. It is the timepiece of my life. Thanks for looking. G

Winter Light On Taos Mountain

Winter light on Taos Mountain from El Prado just north of Taos, NM. A favorite spot to watch the clouds cast shadows across the mountain; an unobstructed view of Taos Mountain (Pueblo Peak), sacred mountain of the Taos Pueblo people; the willows and the cottonwoods. Taos…  the “red willow people.” Clouds pass, the sun sets and rises, time passes, the people and the mountain endure. Thanks for looking. G
