Aspen Road, Mountains, New Mexico

Aspen road, in the mountains of northern New Mexico. The aspens around Taos are in all shades from green and in some cases yellow and gold. Farther north in southern Colorado, at ten thousand feet, things are advancing fast. It is great to smell autumn in the air with moisture and cooler temperatures. Enjoy your autumnal equinox (7:31am MST) this morning and the rest of your fall. Thanks for looking. G

Song Sparrow, Sangre De Cristo Mountains

Song Sparrow along Comanche Creek (yesterday’s photo) in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico. Singing it loud and clear. He certainly got my attention, his song echoing off the canyon walls and hills, accompanied by the babbling brook. Thanks for looking. G

Taos Mountain Meadows, Storm Clouds

Taos Mountain meadows, storm clouds clearing, and summer greening up. These meadows have been added to the list of other conservation easements in Taos County. They are now protected from future development. As a photographer, I welcome as much open space as possible, that affords us views like this. Thanks for looking. G

Mountain Moon Rise, Vallecito Peak

Mountain moon rise, Vallecito Peak, and another view from last nights moon when it rose over the snow covered Sangre de Cristos. I’m familiar with this view and if you’ve followed my work you will probably recognize it too. Last night was more subtle than it sometimes is, but while we’re in this lock down situation I’ll take it. I don’t have to go very far for inspiration either, just a couple of miles down the road. Thanks for looking. G

Taos Mountain, Spring Clouds, Sunshine

Taos Mountain, spring clouds, sunshine, feels good with a slight breeze and scent of sage. It is beautiful out there this spring despite the current situation. And, as I said recently, there’s a lot of out there, out there. Be safe, be safer. Thanks for looking. G

Eagle Rock Lake, Moonrise, Questa

Eagle Rock Lake, Moonrise, Questa, New Mexico. This beautiful location is just up the street from our house, so on my way home last night I popped in and made a few shots. That’s the last of the ice in center screen, although it maybe around for a little while yet. Stay warm and well. Thanks for looking. G

Rio Grande, Blanca Peak, Colorado

Rio Grande, Blanca Peak, Colorado. Crossing over the Rio Grande this evening on the Lobatos Bridge, afforded us this beautiful view of the river north to the Blanca Massif. It was great to get out on the dirt back roads and not have to negotiate snow and mud. Thanks for looking. G

Sunrise, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM

Sunrise, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM. I’m rarely up for a sunrise. In fact I’m hardly ever up for a sunrise. I can usually see it from the bedroom window! I photographed this sunrise because I’d got up to “shoot” the Moon that morning with Mars. This occurred shortly after Mars emerged from behind the Moon. As I was already up I grab this little scene. As always, thanks for looking. G

Isle Of Skye, Scotland

Isle of Skye, Scotland. Loch Cill Chriosd, a flashback to 2013 on a trip through England, Scotland and Wales. Hey Ron, thanks for the inspiration to go through the archives. I hope your trip is wonderful. Thanks for looking. G

Pinto Pony, Llano De San Juan, New Mexico

Pinto pony, Llano De San Juan, New Mexico. Just off the High road to Taos, out of Peñasco is the hamlet of Llano. It is a favorite stop on the High road to Taos photo tour. This pinto/paint was the warmest looking creature around. Suffice to say, as we descended Highway 518 into Taos, the temperatures warmed up resulting in yesterdays photo of the day. Thanks for looking. G
