Jemez Mountains, Sunset, Lenticular Clouds

Jemez Mountains, sunset, shark fin lenticular clouds. I saw the fins in the clouds after I loaded the image in Photoshop®. I like the way the clouds settled over the distant volcano and caldera. I shot this from the Arroyo Hondo mesa before the Moon and Venus revealed themselves after sunset. Thanks for looking. G

Lenticular Clouds, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM

Lenticular Clouds, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM. I photographed these clouds earlier yesterday in broad daylight. They were beautiful of course but I couldn’t capture the fluid motion I felt when looking at them. So I made this image from our driveway after the sun was well and truly set and used a long exposure to show the movement, with the last light causing them to glow this way. Thanks for looking and keep looking up. This is the time of year for lenticular clouds. G

Snow Moon

Snow Moon and lenticular clouds over Taos Mountain. Always a sight to behold!… the pristine moon rising over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico. The waxing, almost full, moon was enhanced by the lenticular clouds we’ve been having of late. Thanks for looking. G


Lenticular Clouds

Lenticular Clouds. I made plenty of images of this scene yesterday evening from the garden. I liked the spectacular reds, oranges and yellows of course. However, I actually prefer this exposure after the sun went down, when the light levels were much lower, and the colors more subtle with soft lavender hues. Here’s and image I made on January 22nd 2015 in Pojoaque, NM
