Backroads, Northern New Mexico

Backroads, off Highway 64, near Hopewell Lake, northern New Mexico. As the rain didn’t come to us, we went to the rain. It was heavy through the mountains and torrential heading north to Chama, NM. When we pulled off the highway and drove down this road I was wishing I had brought the single malt. All we were missing besides was the heather. Thanks for looking. G

Isolated Storm Cell

Isolated storm cell approaching San Cristobal and points north. One of those moments where I just have to pull over and watch what happens. I always make an image, for the record, but didn’t think this one would have much impact at this point. When I awoke this morning I heard my wife exclaim “look how green things are”! The fields and grass were noticeably brighter. This one had become an overnight ground soaker. Thanks for looking. G

San Cristobal Chapel Rainbow

San Cristobal Chapel Rainbow. The other end of the rainbow from last night’s image which was made shortly after this one when the sun returned to the skies. The torrential rains rutted the road in places, filled the ditches and deposited rusty tin cans from ancient dumping grounds in the woods. When it rains historical artifacts rise to the surface. Thanks for looking. G
