Italianos Trail, Leaf, Rock, Lichen

Italianos Trail, Leaf, Rock, Lichen in the Columbine Hondo Wilderness. The leaf had landed here, or someone had placed it here, it doesn’t matter. When my son and I hiked here yesterday we saw many reminders that fall is on it’s way. Last week in southern Colorado we saw numerous groves of aspen, high up, starting to catch on a different kind of fire. I have a few days open if anyone is interested in photographing the fall colors on a private photo tour/workshop. Thanks for looking. G

Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge

Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado. It’s morning in the wildlife refuge as the fog lifts over the cat-tails on the banks of the marshes, slowly dissipating, to reveal the sanctuary islands beyond. The waterfowl are going through their morning ablutions, primping and preening as the sun warms up the air and the day begins. Thanks for looking. G

Muted And Subtle Colors Of Fall

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

Taos Junction On The Rio Grande

Taos Junction on the Rio Grande. Another beautiful day again today in northern New Mexico. This image made from the Taos Junction Bridge in the Orilla Verde RA in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, is one of my favorite locations. This location always continues inspire me when I pull over and park by the river. Fall is in full swing here in northern New Mexico. Drop in if you can, we’ll be glad to show you around and share this great part of the American southwest with you. Thanks for looking. G
