Early Morning In The Wetlands

Early morning in the wetlands, Baca Park, Taos, NM. First trip here in a few years. Things are looking pristine. After dropping the kids off at school I would often take a walk through the wetlands toting a 500mm lens on a monopod. This particular morning, last week, I visited with a friend and brought along one camera body and a fixed lens. The simplicity of things, in seemingly complicated times, shout out loud. Thanks for looking. G

Looking Down Town Taos

Looking Down Town. I often find myself continually looking up or out at a landscape, or I remember things like “keep your chin up” or “things are looking up”, or thinking, how my heart feels like it is soaring with the eagle I’m photographing. A few weeks ago during the last rain I wandered around down town Taos, around the plaza and Bent Street, and made a whole series of pictures looking down. I’ll add a few more images over the next few days unless, that is, something spectacular calls my attention upward again. Thanks for looking. G

Highway Sky, Taos, NM

Highway Sky, Taos, New Mexico. I wanted to create a feeling of what it was like driving in to the Taos Valley today. The highway was highlighted by reflected light from the distant cumulus clouds.  The foothills were backlit and very dark. The cumulus clouds were lit by the sun shining above the storm clouds overhead, giving an indication how low the storm clouds really were. And then… the skies opened up and it just now stopped raining here in San Cristobal, five hours later. Thanks for looking. G
