The Rio Grande in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. Looking upstream from the Taos Junction Bridge to Sunset Rapid and the confluence of the Rio Grande and the Rio Pueblo. This location is a favorite of mine. The river makes for a really nice leading line. Thanks for looking. G
Here are some links to a few more images in this location at different times of year.
The Rio Chama as it passes through the village of Abiquiu, New Mexico. Standing on the banks of this river I realize what draws me to a particular location is the same force that moves the river from the mountains through the canyons, across the desert and finally to the sea. I feel propelled forward as the clouds assist the composition. Thanks for looking. G
At a bend on the Rio Chama in Abiquiu NM. A warm and clear winters day. I love the subtle colors of a New Mexico winter. I can honestly say I love winter photography excursions. For one thing I am mostly alone with my thoughts and camera. With no distractions and when the mind clears the images come. This image actually accounts for 1/1000 of a second of my day. The rest of the time was spent in a form of meditation of which this image is the appreciation of that moment. Thanks for looking. G
Cerrito Blanco, Abiquiu, New Mexico. A favorite spot on a photo tour in Georgia O’Keeffe country along the Rio Chama in Abiquiu. One of the stops at the end of the day on a trip there last week. The river was full and reflecting the grey-blue colors of the winter sky as it weaved it’s way past fields and embankments lined with red willow. Thanks for looking. G
