Greetings from San Cristobal. This week, my favorite cottonwood tree in all the state, and random black and whites on the road in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado.
I think the colors on this cottonwood peaked this morning. I never tire of seeing it whenever I commute to or from Taos, in all seasons.
It’s that time of year when shadows return and traverse the adobe walls of the Saint Francis Church in Ranchos de Taos.
And again in an alleyway in Dixon, NM.
Simplicity in the shadows, San Jose de Gracia, de Las Trampas, on the High Road to Taos.
The light and the darkness.
The church of San Jose de Gracia in Las Trampas is one of my favorite stops on the High Road to Taos. I’ve made many trips there over the years. Last week I watched a number tourists pull over, wind down their windows and take a glance or a quick cellphone photo and immediately drive off. Sometimes I wonder what it’s like being a tourist snap-glancing their way around the planet?
In the following image I cut out any distractions. Unlike this image where the moon completed the shot.
A few days ago I was on the road in another favorite location, on the state line in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado.

As always thank you for looking and all the comments and compliments. G
