Earth, Sky, Mountain Lake

Earth, Sky, reflecting in the lake. Here’s a favorite poem.

“Clambering up the Cold Mountain path,
The Cold Mountain trail goes on and on:
The long gorge choked with scree and boulders,
The wide creek, the mist-blurred grass.
The moss is slippery, though there’s been no rain
The pine sings, but there’s no wind.
Who can leap the world’s ties
And sit with me among the white clouds?”

Thanks for looking. G

Wild Iris, Northern New Mexico

Wild Iris, everywhere in northern New Mexico. It’s that time of year and the mountain meadows are full these gorgeous, delicate, wild iris blooms. If you get a chance to go to the mountains these will be a real treat for you to behold.  Thanks for looking. G

Chicks. Juvenile Red-Tailed Hawk Nest

Chicks. Two very curious juvenile Red-tailed Hawks on the Nest in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. I’ve been watching this nest and another for some time. The other nest appeared to be recently abandoned but these two chicks at this nest site are thriving very well. By July/August they will be practicing flying lessons. I’ll keep an eye on them and fill you in on their progress. Thanks for looking. G

Costilla Creek, Rio Costilla Park, New Mexico

Costilla Creek, Rio Costilla Park, northern New Mexico. A beautiful day in the high country with two photographers. Morning in the San Luis Valley and an afternoon along Costilla Creek with rushing waters, alpine meadows of wild iris, mountain lakes and great company. Here’s a cell phone photo of Costilla Creek as it rushes headlong from the mountains, and into the Rio Grande. Thanks for looking. G

Simplicity In The City, Las Vegas, NM

Simplicity in the city, Las Vegas, NM. This floats my boat. I gravitate to shapes, muted tones  interspersed with occasional organic matter. Here’s an image from a couple of years ago that explains my attraction. Thanks for looking. G

Stone House, Dixon, Downtown

Stone house, Dixon, downtown. Early morning shadows and reflections of this historic stone house, now a studio gallery in Dixon NM. I put the camera on the floor in front of the puddle, as I can’t resist a puddle and this is what I got. Thanks for looking. G
