Sangre de Cristo Light On Snow Capped Peaks

Sangre de Cristo light on snow capped peaks. Following the golden glow and drama on the peaks in yesterday’s image, this reddish color glimmered as the last moment. Thanks for looking. G

Southern Rocky Mountains Super Moon Rise

Southern Rocky Mountains winter solstice super moon rise. I didn’t post this image at the time since the winter solstice full wolf moon eclipse was a more pertinent image for the photo of the day. Prior to the lunar eclipse that evening, this is how the moon looked, as it rose in the east, over the snow capped peaks of the Sangre de Cristo range, of the southern Rocky Mountains. Thanks for looking. G

Spotlight On The Sangre De Cristo Mountains

Spotlight on the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, in particular, Vallecito Peak. It’s easy to drive by this scene, though not these last couple of weeks. The mountain calls! It not only calls, but when I do drive by and forget to stop, it often seems to tap me on the shoulder as if to say, “here look!”. In this case we were heading home when one thing and another conspired to get our attention. A cloud to the west created a perfect funnel causing the light to traverse the ridge until it finally settled on the snowy peak where it spotlighted the stage, lingering there for the final bow. The light slowly faded, the curtain came down and the play was over. We waited for a little while longer and then went home. It was a show to remember.  Thanks for looking at another photo of this particular mountain that desired my attention. G
