Jupiter And Four Moons

Jupiter and four moons as seen from San Cristobal, New Mexico. The atmosphere was hazy so the planet and it’s moons were a little soft focus. As always thank you for looking. G

“Flower” Moon Rise San Cristobal

“Flower” moon rise over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, San Cristobal, NM. Earlier in the day we made a drive through the Moreno Valley where the roads were lined with flags from Eagle Nest to Angel Fire celebrating Memorial Day. We intended to catch the moon rise there, perhaps over the Eagle Nest Lake. We enjoyed the drive and a picnic supper, but instead headed home for a crystal clear view of this “Flower” moon from our deck. Thanks for looking. G

Here’s a link to the names of other full moon phases.

Bill Fegan, Schuler Theatre, Raton New Mexico

Bill Fegan at the Schuler Theatre in Raton New Mexico. Bill came to the Schuler Theatre in 1963. Last year on a photo tour, we met Bill on the street after breakfast and he invited us to visit him at the historic theatre in downtown Raton. He was very generous with his time and gave a his undivided attention on a tour and regaled us with many stories of the theatre’s past and his own.

Bill had recently returned from France for his ninetieth birthday trip. He is pictured here in the lobby of the Schuler Theatre with a portrait of his younger self. If you get the opportunity to visit Raton, go see Bill at the theatre and enjoy some time in his company. While you’re there pay a visit to the exceptional Raton Museum, you wont be disappointed. Thanks for looking. G

Eagle Nest Lake, Moreno Valley, NM

Eagle Nest Lake, in the Moreno Valley New Mexico. I found this image in the archive from a few years ago. It makes me feel as if it’s normal summer weather here in the mountains of northern NM, with an above average water level in the lake. Looking forward to the monsoons in mid July. Thanks for looking.

Spring, Lime Creek, Valley Of The Gods, Utah

Spring cottonwood trees, in Lime Creek, Valley Of The Gods, Utah. I love the red rocks and lush foliage of the cottonwood trees. It was quite lush in most of the places we visited earlier this month in the four corners. Thanks for looking. G

Sentinel Birds At The Saint Francis Church

Sentinel Birds at the Saint Francis Church, Ranchos de Taos. The pigeons are a favorite photo op at the world famous adobe church. I guess one could describe it as “praise” when thirty or forty of them lift off all at once. Thanks for looking. G
