Bosque del Apache reflections, San Antonio, NM. As the marshes fill and the cottonwood leaves succumb to the cold nights, the National Wildlife Refuge, becomes that “a refuge”. In a way it becomes a refuge for all who visit, wildlife and us humans. We certainly felt it this week in the Bosque del Apache, NWR. Thanks for looking. G
Morning moon setting, San Cristobal, NM. This morning I took advantage of the time change and forsook the extra hour in bed and went outside to be greeted by the moon setting. Then I had a cup of tea. Thanks for looking. G
Golden Aspens Monarch Pass, Colorado. On the road today in southern Colorado we came across this grove of golden aspens. We were very surprised to see the tree colors turning… fall is upon us! Thanks for looking. G
Summer Storms in northern New Mexico. One column after another, the rain storms move across the plateau like lazy marching bands, slouching along, with very little purpose, meandering at will, and with no particular destination. As I watch I find my mood shifts and I join in the metaphoric march. Thanks for looking. G
A field of green and a stand of trees in northern New Mexico. It was so lush and green on this road trip I thought I’d crossed the mill pond and arrived in “jolly old” … (England). G
Abandoned truck in a field, under a tree, in Colorado. Sheltering there under the tree, as if by doing so it might retard the deterioration and rusting. I love it. Thanks for looking. G.
A tree, a red wall, and a white picket fence. On the road in southern Colorado.
The abundance of blossoms is over the top in our neighborhood this spring in the San Cristobal valley, NM
Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. Today we made a drive in to the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. On the west side of the Rio Grande Gorge the road meanders leisurely north to the Colorado border. Pronghorn, Elk and many birds accompany us along the way. Seasonal lakes, ancient causeways and abandoned dwellings are reasons to get out of the car and contemplate those who have passed this way. If you have a penchant for unobstructed views, no crowds, peace and quiet, solitude … shall I go on? Join me on a photo tour if this pristine environment is for you.
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.
