March along the Rio Chama in Abiquiu, New Mexico. During this self imposed quarantine I’m touring the archives. I’m going slow, pedaling my virtual bicycle, savoring moments in images made over the last few years. Today, outside the kitchen window there were clouds and sunny skies much like this day from two years ago in Abiquiu. Be safe and please stay well. Thanks for looking. Geraint.
Cottonwoods, Aspens, Mountains, San Cristobal Valley. It’s all about the light and I like to focus on any scene that lives up to that phrase. Here in northern New Mexico the light is everything. This scene I’ve photographed many times always catches my eye as I drive by on my way home. Thanks for looking. G
La Capilla De Nuestra Senora Del Carmen, Llano Quemado, Taos, NM. Last light fading on this iconic chapel lights up the belfry and cross. It is a beautiful piece of New Mexico architecture, representing a culture that extends back before the pilgrims landed. There’s the church of San Miguel in Santa Fe, seventy miles south of Taos, with the date of 1610 carved in a ceiling beam. Thanks for looking. G
Mesa light rays breaking through. The landscape is actually a plateau but locally we all refer to it as “the mesa”. When I was driving home a few weeks ago, I just had to pull over for this one and to watch the show. Believe it or not, there is lightning in the bright spot center right. I was reviewing images today and came across this one, so I thought it time for a dramatic landscape photo. Thanks for looking. G
Rio Costilla Park, Northern New Mexico. The Rio Costilla was flowing with gusto in the mountains yesterday. We caught the last light creeping up the rocks of the canyon walls, casting shadows and reflected light onto the river. If you get a chance to visit this area I highly recommend it. Or join me on a photo tour in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains this summer. Thanks for looking. G
