Snow Storm, Village Of Cerro, New Mexico

Snow storm, in the Village of Cerro, northern New Mexico. On the road to the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument one passes through the village, or hamlet, of Cerro. The road meanders through fields, passing homes, farms, a sweet little church and a local cafe. I thought I’d post an image of things to come, in the region, weather wise, over the next few days. Thanks for looking. G

Cottonwoods, Aspens, Mountains, San Cristobal Valley

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

Bus Bench, Trash Cans, Windows, Farmington, NM

Bus bench, trash cans, windows, Farmington, NM. Drive by shootings of building façades from the highways and byways in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, continued. I do believe that the trash can on the left is for cigarettes and the bus bench is for butts! Sorry I couldn’t resist! Thanks for looking. G

Drive By Shooting, Building Façades

Drive by shooting of building façades from the highways of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. I have been putting together a collection of images, many of which depict façades that are gone and others that no longer represent their original selves. This building is just north of Taos and is currently covered in grafitti! Back then I liked it’s simplicity and hand made doors . Thanks for looking. G

Waning Crescent Moon Rising

Waning (4%) crescent moon rising over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains bright and early this morning. I was surprised to see it as there were those clouds. While I was setting up the the tripod in the driveway, the clouds moved aside revealing this sliver of the moon. It disappeared back into the clouds for another ten minutes, emerging above the linear clouds. Thanks for looking. G

You can just make out a little “earthshine” on the moons surface.

Adobe, Light, Fall, Questa, NM

Adobe light, late fall along the roadside in Questa, New Mexico. The many benefits of traveling over the same territory, whether on a photo tour or personal outing, allows me to see the subtle changes that occur season by season or day by day. This evening, I decided to return over the next few of days to watch the light shift hourly on this adobe. I’ll see what I come up with. Questa, New Mexico exudes cultural authenticity. Thanks for looking. G

White House, Petaca, New Mexico

White House, Petaca, northern New Mexico, on the backroads of rural New Mexico surrounded by miles and miles of piñon pine and juniper hills. As the saying goes, “it’s not the middle of nowhere, but you can see it from here”. Then we come across this scene. A half block long, white-washed building, in a hamlet where people stop their cars and say “hello” as we make images of the house, shining under a deep blue , only in New Mexico, sky. Thanks for looking. G
