Highway sky. Heading south in to Taos, NM on highway 522, the sunset casts an eerie twilight glow over the mesa roadway and reflects off the cloud poised over the Sangre de Cristo foothills. The sun setting behind and through the fire smoke, filtering the light from the west, created this effect. I like the look of the image but the smoke in the atmosphere is getting tiresome. Thanks for checking in. G
Full “Strawberry Moon” rising over El Salto Peak in the Sangre de Cristos, Taos New Mexico. It got very quiet this evening, a kind of eerie silence as the moon peaked over the ridge. No dog, bird, or coyote sounds, as if the whole neighborhood stood still and paid attention. G
Ploughed fields in the San Luis Valley. Center pivot irrigator, and beyond spring snow pack on 14,000 foot Blanca Peak along with the Crestone Peaks of the southern Rocky Mountains, Colorado.
Fish shape in the clouds over the Sangre de Cristo foothills Taos New Mexico. I’m guessing it’s a trout, I don’t know all the members of the trout species, brook, cutthroat, steelhead, lake, rainbow … so I’m going with “an old trout in the clouds.” Thanks for looking. G
A steer skull ranch gate in San Luis, Colorado. I’ve been passing this scene for many years. I finally made an image that I’d seen in my minds eye. I love the way it is suspended, floating against the misty sky creating a surreal feeling. Thanks for looking. G
Sunset on Taos Mountain. The mountain draws me in and shows me all it’s glory. All I got to do is be present. Thank you for looking. G
Eagle Nest Lake at twilight in the Moreno Valley, northern New Mexico.
The full Moon rising over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New Mexico
Morning Magpies in the Juniper trees, San Cristobal, New Mexico. The bright light coming from the west filled in the usually dark Juniper trees adding a somewhat surreal glow and it popped for me, as though I had a very large fill flash lighting this scene.
