Cerro Pedernal, with storm clouds, from the Rio Chama road, New Mexico. This view is from over my shoulder in yesterdays image. I like to remind my photographer friends to always look behind, up and down from the obvious view in front. Many of my best images are from some of the more spontaneous moments I come across. Spotting them on the fly, heading down the road, and finding more than I originally planned. Join me, some time, when this current situation changes and I’ll show you some of New Mexico prime locations. Thanks for looking. G
Abiquiu landscape from the Desert Monastery Road. Out in Georgia O’Keeffe country. Not really hers, but she bandied it around in her paintings, and you can see her former home if you stand on the slope to the right. It’s beautiful country, no wonder she settled here and made the land and nature the focus of her amazing work. Thanks for looking. G
Ghost Ranch is Georgia O’Keeffe Country, and spring in New Mexico is a palette of shifting colors and light. Albeit, an image from a couple of years ago, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, and an experiment in social distancing and the art of photo touring. Not a stretch, but looking for more ways to share locations in our beautiful state with visiting photographers under our current conditions. Thanks for looking. G
Ghost Ranch Corral, a movie set in Abiquiu, New Mexico. A quick snap before the thunder and lightning storm hit and we had to get back in the car. Being the tallest thing out there hanging on to a tripod with a cable release is about as smart as a golfer running for cover clutching a nine iron. A beautiful day with a moment of sanity thrown in. Thanks for looking. G
Georgia O’Keeffe Country, Abiquiu, and Ghost Ranch, New Mexico. I just finished a fabulous three day photo tour and workshop with a photographer from Columbus, Ohio. We spent time on the road around Taos, the High Road, Abiquiu and Georgia O’Keefe country, followed by a day in southern Colorado. The weather totally cooperated and the image making opportunities were stunning. Thanks for looking. G

Just a few of the hundred or so wild horses we photographed on a wild horse photo tour in southern Colorado last month. The young foal was born a couple of days before.
International truck, under the cottonwoods and in the shadow of Cerrito Blanco, Abiquiu, New Mexico. It’s been for sale for quite some time now. I’ve been on many photo tours out there in the last year watching its demise. It is deteriorating fast and going to ground, literally. Thanks for looking. G
Piedra Lumbre (Shining Rock), Ghost Ranch in Georgia O’Keeffe country Abiquiu, NM. I thought I would migrate from images of the snow last week to the red rocks of Ghost Ranch area. Sometimes an image with red rocks and blue skies can warm body and soul. That said I can’t wait for the next snow storm. The land could sure use it! But for now, warm bones and body in the sun feels very good. Thanks for looking. G
