Arroyo Hondo, morning sunrise. Life is good in the pastures at sunrise in the Arroyo Hondo Valley. I spent a moment, on the drive to Taos this morning, to stop and watch the horses grazing in the light filtered fields. This is what light traveling at 186,000 miles per second can create. After spending five minutes at this spot I realized that the light had traveled millions and millions of miles when it entered my camera’s lens, passing through, as the shutter opened, to the sensor which helped produce this scene. Yep I love science, and being present to appreciate the moment. Thanks for looking. G
San Cristobal Sunrise. Every now and again nature nails it. We awoke a couple of mornings ago to the whole house glowing inside from the sunrise light. I wanted to make an image of the interior of the house with the reflected light glancing off walls, windows, furniture and the wood stove. Had I done so, I would have missed this image of the sun rising over the Columbine – Hondo Wilderness out the kitchen window. It wasn’t really a dilemma. Thanks for looking. G
Photo bombed by a balloon. Every year the Taos Mountain Balloon Rally descends and ascends over Taos Valley and the surrounding communities. As I lined up the sun rays coming through the belfry on the St. James church the balloon ascended and there you have it, the “photo bomber”.
