Lobatos Bridge Crossing The Rio Grande

Lobatos Bridge shadows crossing the frozen solid Rio Grande in southern Colorado. The bridge is a favorite stopping point for making images looking upstream on the Rio Grande to the Blanca massif. The mountains are hidden in the clouds on this day. We made some shots of our shadows standing on the bridge instead. Down below in the snow drift on the ice we spotted elk and coyote tracks. Thanks for looking. G

Chama River, Abiquiu, New Mexico

Chama River, Abiquiu, New Mexico. Great weather for a trip out to Abiquiu on this beautiful fall day. The clouds were moving swiftly casting their dramatic shadows on the landscape. We stopped in at one of the studios on the Abiquiu Studio Tour and visited numerous familiar locations that we love. Below is one of our favorites in the village of Abiquiu. Thanks for looking. G

Canyon Of The Rio Grande

Canyon of the Rio Grande. The Rio Grande flows in a north south direction from Colorado, through New Mexico, Texas and Mexico where it finally reaches the Gulf of Mexico. Six hundred feet or so below the rim the river passes through what is known as the “box”, a steep sided canyon on the Taos Plateau, seen here from the Highway 64 high bridge. “Our Canyon” now part of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument continues to amaze me and visitors alike. The views are very vast and one gets the sense of a place where earth meets sky and separation is intangible. “Our river” keeps on rolling. As it heads south the river gathers more stories to tell. It nourishes and replenishes the landscape, wildlife and people of the desert southwest. Thanks for looking. G

Rio Grande In The Orilla Verde Recreation Area

The Rio Grande in the Orilla Verde Recreation Area in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. Looking upstream from the Taos Junction Bridge to Sunset Rapid and the confluence of the Rio Grande and the Rio Pueblo. This location is a favorite of mine. The river makes for a really nice leading line. Thanks for looking. G

A Bend In Rio Chama, Abiquiu, NM

At a bend on the Rio Chama in Abiquiu NM. A warm and clear winters day. I love the subtle colors of a New Mexico winter. I can honestly say I love winter photography excursions. For one thing I am mostly alone with my thoughts and camera. With no distractions and when the mind clears the images come. This image actually accounts for 1/1000 of a second of my day. The rest of the time was spent in a form of meditation of which this image is the appreciation of that moment. Thanks for looking. G
