Greetings from San Cristobal, NM. Happy Summer Solstice from here to where you are. I post the image below every summer solstice since I shot it, on June 20, 2018. I like it! This year it is scheduled to appear in the New Mexico Treasures Calendar, 2024.
The first day of summer arrives with the solstice this year on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at 8:58 a.m. MDT.
The solstice isn’t a whole day, it’s a moment.
Here’s a summer solstice “moment” in black and white, shot in Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu, NM
If you want to see what Plaza Blaca looks like on the outside, here’s a shot of rock and cloud formations.
Here’s another moment I shot in Plaza Blanca on June 22, 2022.
There’s no place like Chaco Canyon to experience the passing moments of the seasons. Here I am sitting under a picnic ramada with a view of the sacred rock formation, Fajada Butte.
The solar eclipse is coming up later in the year. I’m planning on a trip to Chaco Canyon with the rest of the state. We’ll see what happens with those plans.
As always, thank you for looking. It’s a privilege to share my photography with you. G
