Rainbow, Taos Mountains. On the road home the storm recedes leaving the landscape bathed in the special light New Mexico is known for and the prerequisite rainbow. I’ll post the full rainbow on tomorrows photo of the day. Thanks for looking. G

Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico

ghost_ranch_a7r_9317_9318-1-1104905

Ghost Ranch, the landscape of Georgia O’Keeffe Abiquiu, New Mexico. I never ever tire of this view. If it looks familiar that’s because it has be seen in many movies. A few of the movies are “City Slickers” (the first one) along with “Silvarado” and the remake of “The Magnificent Seven” which wasn’t as magnificent as the original. Thanks for looking. G

Stretch Gate With Snow Melt

Stretch gate with snow melt, at the Taos Pueblo Reservation, on the road to Arroyo Hondo. There will probably be more from this location, down the road, as it’s my version of Monet’s hay stack series. Please indulge me. Yesterday the snow melted and filled the cattle guard. Today, temperatures didn’t rise much above 27 degrees fahrenheit. Thanks for looking. G

Rock Bush, Plaza Blanca, New Mexico

rock_bush_plaza_blanca_a7r_9350_9351-4572871

Rock, Bush, Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu, New Mexico. Flash floods whisk through the narrow slot canyon, down arroyos, through culverts and in to the Rio Chama. This rock stands firm with it’s head dress glowing in the afternoon, winter sunlight. All around, the debris from flash flooding has stripped the bark off the few cottonwoods and deposited brush and rocks in many of the nooks and crannies in the wash. Yesterday was a good day for a walk is this beautiful landscape of New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G

On The Plains, Eastern New Mexico

miami_nm_plains_fence_0543_0545-7179154

On the plains, Eastern New Mexico. Photographing landscapes out here in this sparsely peopled region, would benefit from a little vernacular architecture, but only a little, in order to balance the shot. Lacking that, a tree and a distant peak will suffice. The skies go on forever and are constantly morphing before the eyes. I think I have spent past life times, if there is such a thing, on the plains. It all feels so very familiar. Thanks for looking. G

Winter Evening In The San Cristobal Valley

san_cristobal_valley_cropped_9335_9339-8206621

Winter evening and sunset in the San Cristobal valley. My twenty minute commute from Taos to home is not really anything like a commute, with stop and go traffic, more a delightful way to spend the time listening to some tunes on the iPod and take in the ever changing winter evening light on the landscape. During those twenty minutes there is always time to stop and stare and make an image, if only for the record that implants it in memory. A poem below. Thanks for looking. G

Winter evening in the San Cristobal valley

Leisure

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

William Henry Davies
