Pines, Forest Road 493, Northern New Mexico

Pines, Forest Road 493, on the back roads in northern New Mexico. I can almost hear the little tree saying, “will I be like you when I grow up?” Many trees in this area were wiped out in the Hondo Fire in 1996. Those that survived stand tall. New growth has definitely begun and in the fall the burn area is a most spectacular array of golds, reds, yellows, greens and many tones of rust colors. Thanks for looking. G

Sunset Cloud, Taos Mountain

Sunset cloud, Taos Mountain. So, here’s the image that followed yesterday’s picture, ending that day. Had I thought about it I could have added them sequentially. But… I was diving in too deep when I should have been paddling around the edge of the pool. It’s a subtle image, I know, that is what I like about our mountain, it has many personas determined by the light, and as you know, we have the light here in New Mexico. Stay well, and I’ll see you tomorrow from somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Thanks for looking. G
