Red Wheelbarrow, Surprise, Snow, San Cristobal, NM

Red Wheelbarrow with a surprise in the snow, San Cristobal, New Mexico. I like to wander early in the morning, well not too early, in the garden. This little surprise was waiting to be discovered in Pami’s red wheelbarrow after the last snow. So…, something red for the holidays. Thanks for looking. G

Colorful Mural, Fence, Gutiz Restaurant, Taos, NM

Colorful mural on the fence at Gutiz Restaurant, Taos, NM. Take away and curbside pick up for the next few weeks, at least. I shot this image waiting for an oil change next door. A colorful mural brightening up the twenty-minute wait. Thanks for looking. G

Moonrise, Sangre De Cristos, San Cristobal

Moonrise this evening over the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, San Cristobal, NM. I got this quick shot out of the dining room window as the waxing moon was served up in a gorgeous pink sky. I served up a pot of green chile chicken stew, a perfect accompaniment to a cold fall evening. Thanks for looking. G

Slate River, Crested Butte, Colorado

Slate River, Crested Butte, Colorado. Yep, the colors along the banks of the Slate River look like this. I’ve seen similar colors of slate lining walls in homes and more upscale hotels. Where I grew up in Wales the roofs were all blue slate and the houses built from locally quarried stone. This particular geology has the iron colors running throughout. I like it and reminds me of home. Thanks for looking. G

Ash Leaf, San Cristobal, New Mexico

Ash Leaf, San Cristobal, New Mexico. Big winds, which I enjoy, and I know there are many feelings and opinions concerning the wind. This little heart-shaped leaf landed in the garden in the rain. There’s always a little beauty in every perceived demise. Thanks for looking. G

Poppy, In The Garden, San Cristobal

Poppy, in the garden, San Cristobal, and although they don’t last long, this is one of four and being the approximate size of a dinner plate, put on a marvelous display. With the winds we’ve had today the ground should be well and truly seeded. Thanks for looking. G

Pigeon Hole, Window, Color, Pink

Pigeon hole, window, color of the day, pink! You know where that pigeon is heading to hideout from the storm tonight, joining a few friends in this building on the road in Cerro, NM, “gateway” to the National Monument. Thanks for looking. G

Green Willows, Orilla Verde, NM

Green willows and a few cottonwood trees, Orilla Verde in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. Watching the seasons and colors change along the banks of the river and living here, surrounded by all this beauty, does this soul good. Thanks for looking. G
