Rural Southern Colorado, Ute Mountain, Barn

Rural southern Colorado, Ute Mountain, barn. Gorgeous skies and the last snow fall across the valley. Hopefully not the last snow of the winter. This was less than a week ago. Today all the snow is gone and temps were in the mid 50’s F. The ice was gone on the lake. I was standing on the same ice a week ago. Today felt like the refreshing, first day of spring. Thanks for looking. G

Moon, Jupiter, Rising, Taos New Mexico

Moon, Jupiter, Rising, in the skies over Taos, New Mexico. Not a bad way to start the day. Up early, watching the celestial bodies traverse the sky into daylight. The Moon, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn along with Antares the red heart of the Scorpion constellation in beautiful unison. A nice cup of tea nearby and a camera in hand, the day tends to go rather well after a start like that. Thanks for looking. G

Columbine Hondo Wilderness

Columbine Hondo Wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of northern New Mexico. This is what I see on my commute, when I make a commute. This is what I see from our valley. This scene is what I see when I walk out of the local market. My bucket list…?  Don’t have one!  Heading out tomorrow in the new fallen snow we are getting today. Stay tuned for more images. Thanks for looking. G

Morphing Clouds, Taos, NM

Morphing clouds over the western volcanic plateau from Taos, NM. There were so many images posted on social media of the broader sunset. I have a number of those images too. I was more intrigued with this one little detail that represented what was happening in the overall grander view. The clouds were morphing fast as if inspired by the setting sun. They kind of reminded me of a lava lamp. Thanks for looking. G

Bobcat Pass Lone Tree

Bobcat Pass lone tree and sky. A favorite scene in northern New Mexico. This is a location where the shifting clouds form a fabulous backdrop to the tree, or when the summer moon rises directly behind it to the east. I like to stop here whenever I’m on the Enchanted Circle drive through the Moreno Valley and over Bobcat Pass. Keep looking up and thanks for looking. G

Nature’s Banquet

Nature’s Banquet. “The banquet is spread constantly, with no thought of whether anyone will attend. If I were receptive enough, perhaps I would see it in everything. But I’m not, so photography is one of the tools I use to help me concentrate, to help me see deeply, to block out all that is extraneous and see that which is essential.”

Taos Mountain Evening Light

Taos Mountain evening light. The light was changing rapidly on the Sangre de Cristo mountains as I watched from the car driving home. The clouds were moving fast. I pulled over and made four images to create this panorama, out of the window. This was the only moment I caught before the big cloud filled in the foreground. The light, the clouds, me, the camera and this fleeting moment. Click. Thanks for looking. G

Sangre De Cristo Foothills, Lama, NM

Sangre De Cristo foothills, near Lama, NM. We caught the end of the day’s light as the sun peeped out from a letterbox opening on the horizon. Besides the lighting, the landscape was looking very lush and a little bit tropical during this summer’s monsoons. Not to bad for an area that burned 22 years ago in the “Hondo Fire”. Thanks for looking. G
