San Francisco De Asis Church

San Francisco De Asis Church and brooding sky in Ranchos de Taos, NM. This iconic building has been painted and photographed by many over the decades, most notably by Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams. The San Francisco De Asis Church has been immortalized, indelibly and for good. I’m always happy to visit and add to the narrative, and archive, documenting it’s many moods and looks. Thank you for looking. G

Sunset, Moon, Wall and Trees

Sunset, Moon, Wall and Trees. Dove into the archives today and found this image from 2010. It was taken across the street from where I lived at that time. Stay tuned for more images from the archives as I traipse down memory lane. Have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday. For my friends in Florida, be safe and we’ll see you on the other side of the hurricane. Thanks for looking. G

Black Mesa, San Ildefonso, NM

Black Mesa, San Ildefonso, NM. One of the most gorgeous iconic locations and one of so many in northern New Mexico. This location at San Ildefonso Pueblo is featured in many photographer’s portfolio. That doesn’t make it any less iconic as it is an area that is pristine and unspoiled and thank goodness. Come visit New Mexico and I’ll show you this and many more of these locations. Thanks for looking. G

Cumbres And Toltec Scenic Railroad

Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad. The Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad has terminals in Antonito, Colorado and Chama, New Mexico. It crosses the state line and travels through some of the most spectacular landscape in both states. It’s also fun to park and watch the train, to take some photos, as it climbs under full steam crossing the terrain. This image is from its arrival at the Cumbres Pass depot. Thanks for looking. G

Bachelor Rams, Taos Mountain

Bachelor Rams, on the west rim with the Taos mountains as a backdrop. That’s Taos Mountain (Pueblo Peak) on the right, with much needed rain falling directly on the peak. The Bighorn Sheep, all rams, are a band roaming the west rim of the Rio Grande Gorge. If you would like to join me on a photo tour/workshop we will visit all the usual locations and see if we can spot them. The second image shows how close we got to them grazing along the roadside. They seem to enjoy the lush plants that get runoff from the rains on the highway. Thanks for looking. G

Rio Chama Road, Off The Beaten Path

Rio Chama road, off the beaten path in Abiquiu, New Mexico. A quick trip to the red and honey colored rock country in the Chama River Canyon yesterday. The temps were in the mid nineties, exceedingly hot and dry! It was great fun to spend time with my son, listening to his story telling, surrounded by gorgeous scenery and good company. Thanks for looking. G

Bighorn Ram, A Young One

Bighorn Ram, a young one! Handsome and immaculately turned out. His horns look like they haven’t yet seen any rutting or any entanglement with larger, more experienced, rams. He was on his own, on a rock in the Orilla Verde area of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, chewing his cud. Doing what bighorn sheep tend to do, he ignored us and moseyed on his leisurely way. Thanks for looking. G

Thanks for looking. G

Wild Mustang, Southern Colorado

Wild Mustang, roaming in the San Luis Valley, southern Colorado. It was the stallion permitting us to participate in this encounter with these beautiful and powerful wild beings. Stomping his foot and showing his teeth we moved forward, cautious, in deference, as if in some form of supplication. As close as this is, we respected their space and with the aid of long lenses, were able to make images of these magnificent creatures. Click on photo to enlarge. Thanks for looking. G
