Cloud, Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu, NM

Cloud, Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu, NM. Stopped in Plaza Blanca (the “White Place”) today. It was hot and beautiful. The clouds passed overhead and things cooled for a bit but it’s always cool with a slight breeze in the slot canyon. I love this place. Thanks for looking. G

Formations In Rock, Geology Of Plaza Blanca

Formations in rock, the geology of Plaza Blanca, Georgia O’Keeffe’s “white place” Abiquiu, NM. Arches, buttresses and spires abound. A veritable, natural cathedral in rock. I can almost hear evening song echoing off the canyon walls. Thanks for looking. G

Gecko, Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu

Gecko Lizard, Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu.  I’ve not seen a gecko here before so it was a pleasant  surprise when we spotted him. He was quite a poser and scurried around to a few locations alighting on the top of rocks for his closeup. Thanks for looking. G

Curly’s Cabin, Ghost Ranch, NM

Curly’s Cabin, Ghost Ranch, NM. Gorgeous skies over Curly’s Cabin used it the movie “City Slickers”. Dropped in Ghost Ranch today. I’ve been here many times but today the clouds were exceptional. The cabin was glowing and the sky was blue, like only in New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G

Penitente Morada Sky, Abiquiu NM

Penitente Morada and sky, in Abiquiu NM. I never tire of this beautiful, iconic landmark and architectural gem in New Mexico. It sits perfectly on a bluff, above everything, overlooking Abiquiu and the Chama River Valley. I’ve found my peace in this location and many other locations like it in New Mexico. Here’s a photo I made on my first trip here in 1984. Thanks for looking. G

Desert Heart, Ghost Ranch

Desert heart, Ghost Ranch. Having a little fun with a piece of tree. The half a heart branch was laying there, still, as it was a year or so ago. I photographed it then as well. With nothing better to do yesterday I made this composite. Thanks for looking. G

Apache Plume, Plaza Blanca

Apache Plume, Plaza Blanca, Georgia O’Keeffe’s “white place”. The apache plume, a native plant, is behaving a lot like an invasive species this year. I hope it takes over the terrain of invasive plants and continues to propagate and populate our landscape. Although there were other, more flamboyant and abundant apache plume bushes, I think this particular plant shows tenacity and hardiness ensconced, as it is, in a rock. Thanks for looking. G

Piedra Lumbre, Clouds In Motion

Piedra Lumbre, clouds in motion. In the red rock country in Abiquiu, NM today, on a photo tour with my good friend Harold Hall. The clouds went whizzing bye “wheee…” enjoying the ride across the sky over Piedra Lumbre (shining rock from the Spanish). The day began early, warmed up quickly, and clouds filled in the blanks over the red rock formations. Thanks for looking. G
