Downtown Taos, La Fonda Hotel, Shadows. Stopped in Taos Plaza this morning for a drive by shooting. Had to get out of the car for this one! New Mexico lends itself to images of architecture and early morning shadows. I’m not always up so early but when I am I like to cruise the empty streets for this type of shot. Of course, the sun was well and truly up before me! Thanks for looking. G
Chile ristras and ladders, El Prado. Coming soon to everywhere in New Mexico. I hope you get out here to see them hanging from vigas and portals, accented against adobe walls. Quintessential New Mexico, for all the senses. Thanks for looking. G
Where I grew up chile was the country and chili is what one eats. I’ve since learned my lesson. But not until I did.
Sky ladder to the blue. The thunder storms came today, this was the clearing after the rain. It came as a promising outburst. Thirty minutes later it felt more like a tantrum. There is still the rumbling, rolling sounds of thunder over the mountains. Looking forward, at some point, to a good ground soaking. Thanks for looking. G
New years eve ladder and moon rise El Prado (the meadows), Taos, New Mexico. We followed the moon rise this evening, from the Rio Grande Gorge, north towards Tres Piedras and east and south into El Prado where the moon was rising near this favorite location of the ladder that points to the sky. A very happy new year… and as always… thank you for looking. G

Ladder to the sky. In the snow day yesterday we had a lot of fun driving here and there looking for photo ops. This ladder rises over a Mexico import shop in El Prado north of Taos. The sky had this slight pinkish warmth to it and the ladder reached for the light. Thanks for looking. G
