Monument Valley, Navajo Tribal Park, Arizona

Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Arizona. Sunset from my room in “The View” Hotel. I didn’t make it here this year for the obvious reasons. This was last Spring. I’m looking forward to another photography trip there soon. Interesting that the hotel is built on the former campground where I’d camped many times prior. I often had this view all to myself years ago. Here’s another view from “The View”. Thanks for looking. G

Taos Plateau, Sunset Rays, Storm Clouds

Taos Plateau, sunset rays with storm clouds brewing. Out here in the west, we get these vast skies and expansive views that go on forever, and these letterbox sunsets are a particular feature when storms roll through. Thanks for looking. G

Three Peaks, Jemez Mountains, Crescent Moon, Sunset

Three Peaks, the Jemez Mountains, a Crescent Moon, in a Sunset. I stepped outside for an hour to watch the moon set across the plateau over Three Peaks (Tres Orejas), and the Jemez Mountains a supervolcano. The moon and sky were bathed in the golden afterglow from the sunset. Thanks for looking. G

Sunset Viewing Sofa, West Rim Road, Taos

Sunset viewing sofa, West Rim Road, Taos. Yeah… really, it was deposited and abandoned, probably recycled in some other happy family’s home by now. The things one sees in the most unexpected places, I just had to stop and make an image. Thanks for looking. G

Waxing Crescent Moon, Taos Plateau, Volcanic Field

Waxing Crescent Moon, over the Taos Plateau, Volcanic Field. It’s been a while since I’ve caught a 1% crescent moon waxing in the west due to clouds and constant fire smoke this year. Last evening was a special treat and beautiful to behold. Thanks for looking. G

Northern New Mexico, Evening Sky

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

Sun, Fire Smoke, Wind, Taos Valley And Beyond

Sun and fire smoke with wind across the Taos Valley and beyond. A few images from yesterday evening when smoke from Colorado, California and New Mexico filled the skies over most of the state. I had fun finding locations most of which I’m very familiar with so it wasn’t too difficult. Rather apocalyptic looking. Stay safe, be well and thanks for looking. G
