Ghost Ranch, Spring, New Mexico

Ghost Ranch is Georgia O’Keeffe Country, and spring in New Mexico is a palette of shifting colors and light. Albeit, an image from a couple of years ago, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, and an experiment in social distancing and the art of photo touring. Not a stretch, but looking for more ways to share locations in our beautiful state with visiting photographers under our current conditions. Thanks for looking. G

Rio Chama Overlook, Abiquiu, NM

Rio Chama overlook, in Abiquiu, NM. Lets stay in this area one more day. It’s greening up in northern New Mexico. It’s not looking quite like this just yet but it’s getting there. That means spring is here and that’s a good thing. I can feel the days warming up, with milder evenings where the wind has second thoughts. This place on the Rio Chama is a favorite stop on many photo tours. You can see why. Thanks for looking. G

March, Rio Chama, Abiquiu, NM

March along the Rio Chama in Abiquiu, New Mexico. During this self imposed quarantine I’m touring the archives. I’m going slow, pedaling my virtual bicycle, savoring moments in images made over the last few years. Today, outside the kitchen window there were clouds and sunny skies much like this day from two years ago in Abiquiu. Be safe and please stay well. Thanks for looking. Geraint.

Outdoor Living, New Mexico Style

Outdoor living, “New Mexico Style” in Arroyo Blanco, Abiquiu. Following another photo shoot in the area, we happened upon this junk deposited in a dry arroyo. There is an abundance of trash dumped here by lazy people. It’s a serious issue, a blight on the otherwise stunning landscape. The only thing missing..? an empty bottle of Bud Light, the beer of choice for low lives! There’s a truckload of bud bottles in another arroyo close bye. We tried to make light of it all with this set up.  Thanks for looking. G

On location, in Arroyo Blanco, the Rio Grande Gorge Rim and San Cristobal, New Mexico. This is the latest photo shoot in collaboration with Tres Estrellas Design of Taos to recreate a glimpse of their exquisite textiles, in historical context, within the familiar landscape of New Mexico we all know today.

Rio Chama Bosque, Abiquiu, NM

Rio Chama Bosque, Cerrito Blanco, Abiquiu, NM. In the bosque (woods) along the Rio Chama. It’s a beautiful location and I feel unencumbered, yet cloistered by the arching trees. Their branches bend and bow in all directions, creating a natural cathedral like feeling. Hmm… think I’ll stay here awhile. I made this image on December 29, 2017. It doesn’t look like it but it was quite cold this day, but not as cold as it’s going to be here in San Cristobal on December 29, 2019. We’re expecting -2º rising to about 22º for a high. Brrrr! Thanks for looking. Stay warm wherever you are. 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
