Northern New Mexico, Evening Sky

rainbow_walking_rain_san_cristobal_8852-6032826

Northern New Mexico, one epic evening sky. In celebration of my fifteen year anniversary of posting one photo every day since September 9, 2005. I started my website with a rainbow so I thought I post a rainbow, with walking rain (virga) followed literally by the most amazing sunset a few days ago. Today we have snow and cold temperatures, so I stayed in all day. My website is my visual journal, I visit often. Thank you for joining me all these years. Onward! G

Taos Mountain, with a summer rainbow, Taos, NM. Delving in to the rainbow archive this week, I found this almost a tandem double rainbow. I’m saving gas not driving around Taos to capture more rainbows. I’ll start a campaign on current rainbows next week. Thanks for looking commenting and complimenting my work. I’m always grateful to hear from everyone. Cheers and enjoy. G

Rainbow, Highway, Taos Valley, New Mexico. Highway 522 runs from Taos to the Colorado, state line. I was heading home after a day in Las Vegas, NM, sitting on a couple of different benches around town, chatting about photography and a hundred other subjects, with good friend R. David Marks. In this image I’m looking south towards Taos. After spotting the rainbow in my rear view mirror I pulled over and shot this. There is a confusion of light rays dashing every which way. I don’t mind. Thanks for looking. G

Capulin Volcano, Rainbow, Northeastern NM

Capulin Volcano, Rainbow, Northeastern NM. Here’s the rainbow after the storm in Capulin, NM. The rainbow can be seen arcing just in front of the volcano. Fortunately it’s an extinct cinder cone volcano. The super volcano in Yellowstone, if it goes off, will cover New Mexico with a foot or more of ash. Thanks for looking. G
