Two love chairs await on a side street in Crested Butte Colorado… not sure why you would sit here or love it, the space between doesn’t say much for the proximity of love. Maybe the space between is where love grows. Oh well, here it is!
Estancia Homestead … on the road … on a six day photo workshop around the four corners area and our last day southeast of Albuquerque touring around Estancia and the Salinas Missions National Monuments in New Mexico
The abundance of blossoms is over the top in our neighborhood this spring in the San Cristobal valley, NM
Painted dancing Kachina doll cut outs at a souvenir shop on Old Town Plaza in Albuquerque, NM
San Felipe de Neri church, Old Town Plaza, Albuquerque, New Mexico. I like finding new peep hole that reveal a familiar view or subject I’ve encountered in the past. Thanks for looking. G
Eagle Nest Lake and the town of Eagle Nest at twilight in the beautiful Moreno Valley, northern New Mexico.
Craquelure. Aging nicely in Crested Butte, Colorado. Decaying paint work on building siding in the old mining, mountain ski town. Wandering around the town of Crested Butte we find many abstract type images like this one. The town has an abundance of scenes lined up waiting to become images.
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.
White Bridge. A car crosses the Taos Junction bridge over the Rio Grande, it’s headlights illuminate the girders with the Milky Way overhead. Here is the Bridge in Red illuminated by the tail lights of a vehicle. Both in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar, New Mexico, and under the starry skies of the Milky Way.
Solar Halos and Sunflowers, a little something from last summer. I found this image recently on a hard drive buried in the closet, it gave me a good feeling so here it is. Thanks for looking.
Black Mesa Sunset, across the plateau to a scene that occurs frequently when a storm recedes and the sky gets very dark and the light grows under it.
Elements in the morning, at the TCA, Taos Community Auditorium in downtown Taos, NM
San Jose de Gracia Church, built between 1760 and 1776 in Las Trampas, New Mexico. In this image I overlaid the photo of the church on a photo of the mud walls using Adobe Photoshop Mix on the iPhone. Makes for a different kind of look.
The full Moon rising over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New Mexico. Rising through the light fog this evening. I enjoyed the simplicity of this scene of the moon and only the moon. It gave a sense of some innate peace in the universe.
Coyote stalking prey moving through the lava rocks, sage and cholla cactus early one morning in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area, Pilar, New Mexico. It paused numerous times to briefly acknowledge our presence, loped off, and continued its foraging between rocks and sage only to perch on another rock with a good vantage point and make eye contact again. Moving adeptly, confidently, over the unstable terrain the coyote swiftly gained ground and left us watchers in its wake as it crossed the road ahead and vanished in to the red willows along the Rio Grande.
American Kestrel. What can I say about this spritely little fellow, seen here hunting prey of beetles, crickets, other sundry bugs and small rodents along the fence line on the Hondo Mesa, Taos NM. I am always happy to stop to watch and photograph these colorful hawks.
