Hello Spring! Sangre De Cristo Mountain Moon Rise

Hello spring! Sangre De Cristo mountain moon rise. Life out the kitchen window, constantly awe inspiring. So much so I went out in to the garden this evening to see, smell and feel the potential shift in the air. Thanks for looking. G

Almost Full Moon Rise, Northern NM

Almost full moon rise, in the clouds over the Sangre de Cristo mountains of Northern NM. I looked out the kitchen window, there were some clouds, all wonderfully illuminated by the setting sun. I poured myself a glass of Jameson’s whiskey. When I looked out the window again this is what I saw. Happy Vernal Equinox, thanks for looking. G

Pueblo Peak, Taos Mountain Moonrise

Pueblo Peak, (Taos Mountain) moon rise this evening from US Highway 64. Pull over really quickly at a turnout when the tip of the moon crested the peak. This monthly moment draws people out to watch. Many people pull over to the side of the road and just watch. I’m grateful for this moment every month. If you scroll back through my archives for each month you will see how often I show up and attend this event. It is the timepiece of my life. Thanks for looking. G

Sunshine Valley Homestead

Sunshine Valley, and an abandoned homestead in northern New Mexico. There is an inscription in the door step threshold on the east side, facing the moon rise and the mountains, dated 1946. It’s good to know that someone living here, at one time or another, saw the moon rising over the Sangre de Cristos. I wonder if they marveled at it like I do or were they too busy to notice. Thanks for looking. G

Harvest Moon Rising Over Taos Pueblo

The almost full Harvest Moon rising over the Sangre de Cristo foothills at the Taos Pueblo, New Mexico. I waited ten minutes at this location along the highway through El Prado, watching amidst roaring traffic noise, waiting with the camera trained on this spot where the phone app said the moon will rise. The app was correct and I made a sequence of images from the moment it peeped over the trees. As it rose all noise from the highway seemed to cease. I heard birds and crickets and the sound of a light breeze in the trees. The moon silenced my world in that moment. Thanks for looking and continuing to look. G

Full Moon Rising, Columbine Hondo Wilderness, NM

Full moon rising, Columbine Hondo Wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico. Crystal clear this evening. The sky, the moon and a glass of Talisker from the Isle of Skye. Not bad in my world. Thanks for looking. G

Full Moon Camera View

Full moon camera view, San Cristobal, NM. Just in case the clouds cover the moon rise over the next couple of days, here’s a image from a few months ago. I’ll be watching. I hope there is a gap in the clouds. Thanks for looking. G

Sangre de Cristo Moon Rise, Northern New Mexico

Sangre de Cristo moon rise, northern New Mexico over Virsylvia Peak and Questa Dome. Looks like a grinning dinosaur to me, looking over it’s shoulder. I made this image last week but didn’t think much of it at first until, upon review, I saw the T-Rex outline in the rocks. I drive by this all the time on my way to Colorado. This is the first time I’ve see any form to this rock dome. Timing is everything. Thanks for looking. G

Full Moon Rise Over Vallecito Peak Taos, NM

Full moon rise over Vallecito Peak in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of northern New Mexico. That big beautiful moon yesterday. It is not hard to predict the moons point of rising. I’ve been doing this for many years. I look back through my archives for a particular month and from that I can pretty much pin point the spot, as in this case yesterday evening. For an unfamiliar location there are many apps available online. Thanks for looking. G

New Years Eve Moon Rise

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
