The Light, Both Ways

The drive home yesterday with a quick stop for this moment. Looking West, looking East and as always thank you for looking. G

El Salto, El Prado, Winter Light

El Salto rocks, El Prado, bathed in winter light. Pull over on the shoulder. Find a vantage point through the trees, wait for the cattle to separate with a little space between them so they resemble cattle and not clumps of coal. There you have it. Another beautiful vista on the drive home. Thanks for looking. G

An Evening Pastoral Scene in The Meadows

Thanks for looking. G

Strawberry Moon Rising

Full “Strawberry Moon” rising over El Salto Peak in the Sangre de Cristos, Taos New Mexico. It got very quiet this evening, a kind of eerie silence as the moon peaked over the ridge. No dog, bird, or coyote sounds, as if the whole neighborhood stood still and paid attention. G

El Salto Rains, Sangre de Cristos

El Salto Rains. I have often seen the rain falling on El Salto and Lucero Peaks when it looks like this. The peaks give scale to the columns of rain as they march steadily on in some perceptible purpose through the rock formations to the high Sangre de Cristos beyond. Thanks for looking. G
