The Meadows, Taos New Mexico

The Meadows, Taos, New Mexico. I don’t go to my bank very often. I do my banking on line. But when I do this is the view I see as I pull out on to US Highway 64 in El Prado (the meadows) just north of Taos. Beyond the summer greens of the line of red willows is Taos Pueblo land. From here the view is unobstructed to the Columbine – Hondo Wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Thanks for looking. G

Chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Cañon, Taos

Chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Cañon, Taos NM. One cross many shadows. This little chapel is adorned with at least nine crosses on the outside. If one counts them and all the shadows, then I’m sure this is a very blessed place, and iconic New Mexicana. Always a favorite stop on a photo tour. Thanks for looking. G

New Years Eve Moon Rise

New years eve ladder and moon rise El Prado (the meadows), Taos, New Mexico. We followed the moon rise this evening, from the Rio Grande Gorge, north towards Tres Piedras and east and south into El Prado where the moon was rising near this favorite location of the ladder that points to the sky. A very happy new year… and as always… thank you for looking. G

Taos Pueblo Christmas Eve Bonfires

Taos Pueblo Christmas Eve bonfires, an annual event at the Taos Pueblo. For the past five years, Pami and I have gone to El Prado to watch the first spark fly as the bonfires are lit at the Pueblo. This year the buildings were illuminated by the glow from the western sky. In previous years the sky has been encumbered by clouds and last year it snowed. Thus, in this image the “north house” is visible to the far left. The “south house” slightly to the right above the lighted house. The San Geronimo Church is about eight ‘o’ clock from the bright cross on the far right. Thanks for looking and happy holidays. G

Ladder To The Sky, El Prado, NM

Ladder to the sky. In the snow day yesterday we had a lot of fun driving here and there looking for photo ops. This ladder rises over a Mexico import shop in El Prado north of Taos.  The sky had this slight pinkish warmth to it and the ladder reached for the light.  Thanks for looking. G

Nature’s Winter Ornament

Nature’s winter ornament Baca Park, Taos, New Mexico. There’s no shortage of pristine moments on the trail. Evidence of the season abound, scenes created from nature’s passion and zest, over tinsel, blinking lights and festooning garlands. At this time of year, a walk in the woods is as close as it gets to life affirming everything. Walking in the wetlands this morning, following an overnight snow fall, I found this gem of a scene. The weight of the snow on the stem of the leaf reminded me of how tenuous is life. The snow fall aids the cycle of life, the tree grows stronger from the lack of leaves, it shuts down, gathers it’s inner strength and ultimately blasts into spring. When I need any more affirmation, I put on a recording of Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Happy Holidays. Thank you for looking. G

Flag Over The Tipi, Taos New Mexico

Flag over the tipi Taos, New Mexico. It’s been a busy week here in the studio. Print sales are winging their way around the country. In order to pull images I had to delve into the archives. It filled in some time between making prints and as the prints were coming out of the printer. I found this image from 2009 made at the Taos Tipis on the road to Santa Fe. Thanks for looking. G
