Aspen glade near Hopewell Lake, New Mexico. Just off the highway and a short walk away was this beautiful aspen glade carpeted with the leaves that had fallen with many more to go. The golden aspens were creating their own magical light source and a perfect moment to spend time in a beautiful place. I think I’ll head out there again tomorrow. Thanks for looking. G
Muted and subtle colors of fall and moisture on the deck in San Cristobal, NM. The leaves… ash, aspen, locust, cottonwoods and apple are piling up and as the temperatures drop the vibrant colors turn cooler. Each morning is an affirmation of winter’s approach and a promise of springs rejuvenation. Yes I love the cool down and slow down at this time of year. Thanks for looking. G
The Stand of aspens on the slopes of the Cumbres Pass on the Colorado New Mexico border. At first thought they appear almost afraid to stand alone, gathered in a huddled like posture, creating the feeling of strength in numbers. A subsequent thought occurred to me; what a ‘content’ little grouping of trees! Cheers. G
Aspen leaves. There are some areas where the leaves are peaking and some stands of aspen where the few leaves remaining are “hanging in there”. This image was made in Garcia Park in the high country of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, northern New Mexico.
