Penitente Morada, Abiquiu NM. The storm clouds build and rains come in the afternoon during monsoon season. This building has borne witness to that fact for a couple of centuries. Thanks for looking. G
San Francisco de Asis Church, Ranchos de Taos, NM. Discovered in a rapidly evaporating puddle, following afternoon rain storms this week on a photo workshop around northern New Mexico, and as always a great opportunity to discover new views and angles. Thanks for looking. G
San Cristobal Chapel Rainbow. The other end of the rainbow from last night’s image which was made shortly after this one when the sun returned to the skies. The torrential rains rutted the road in places, filled the ditches and deposited rusty tin cans from ancient dumping grounds in the woods. When it rains historical artifacts rise to the surface. Thanks for looking. G
San Cristobal Valley Rainbow. Stepped out this evening and thought to myself about how far do I really need to go, from this place I call home, to find beauty? I think I will stay right here. Thanks for looking. G
Summer Storms in northern New Mexico. One column after another, the rain storms move across the plateau like lazy marching bands, slouching along, with very little purpose, meandering at will, and with no particular destination. As I watch I find my mood shifts and I join in the metaphoric march. Thanks for looking. G
Storms Across The Plateau. Shafts of sunlight play tag with the shadows coursing across the northern New Mexico landscape. Thanks for looking. G
Thunderheads and monsoon clouds building over the Sangre de Cristo foothills. Looking forward to some cool rains a little later this week.
El Salto Rains. I have often seen the rain falling on El Salto and Lucero Peaks when it looks like this. The peaks give scale to the columns of rain as they march steadily on in some perceptible purpose through the rock formations to the high Sangre de Cristos beyond. Thanks for looking. G
