Super Moon Rising Taos, New Mexico

Super moon rising over Vallecito Mountain, Taos, New Mexico. This was made a few minutes later than yesterday’s photo of the day. I’ve also added a bonus image of the moon in the clouds from later last night. Tonight the moon is behind some thick clouds for the time being. It looks like it will clear the clouds where we live in half an hour or so. We will be watching and I hope you can get out on your stoop and see the beauty of it all for yourself. Thanks for looking.

Super Moon Rising, Vallecito Mountain, Taos

Super Moon Vallecito Mountain Taos, New Mexico. We purposefully made a trip out to the west rim of the Rio Grande Gorge to watch the super moon rise tonight. The high mountains of the Sangre de Cristos blocked the moon rise and allowed us some twenty minutes to chat with a visiting photographer who had dropped in from Colorado to photograph the high bridge and the gorge. We were sharing stories about life, travels and photography etc. when I felt like someone clamped the defibrillator leads on my chest and shocked my heart awake when I saw this sight! Check out the “absolute” full moon tomorrow December 3, 2017. Thanks for looking. G

Corn Woman Of Vallecito Peak

Corn Woman of Vallecito Peak, the mountains of Taos, New Mexico. Yes! it snowed today and when the clouds lifted we got to see how much. In this image the shape of the pine trees in the bowl of the mountain resembles a woman sowing the corn seeds, hence, corn woman. Others say it’s “weaver woman” and other folks amongst us with a sense of humor, say it’s “Olive Oyl”. What do you think? Anyway… as I was saying, it snowed, which made for a gorgeous day. Thanks for looking. G
