Wolf Moon, Waxing Crescent, Sunset

Wolf Moon waxing crescent, sunset, from the driveway, San Cristobal. It’s not far from the house for a great view in all directions. This view was to the southwest shortly after the sunset. I’m looking forward to the super moon eclipse on January 20-21, 2019. Stay tuned and thanks for looking. G

San Cristobal Valley Chapel, NM

San Cristobal Valley sunset on the community Chapel of San Cristóbal, New Mexico. Always the golden light after the storm. Always, and thanks be for, the ubiquitous single wide mobile home, with a lopsided swamp cooler, abandoned in an adjacent field. Thanks for looking. G

Jemez Mountains Caldera, Crescent Moon

Jemez Mountains Caldera, with the crescent Moon and a small flock of cranes. Another shot from the west garden wall. The thought of the cranes heading south inspires me with images of warmer climes. Not that I’m heading south any time soon, but I’ll let them carry my thoughts with them. Thanks for looking. G

Jemez Mountains, Cerro Pedernal Sunset

Jemez Mountains and Cerro Pedernal sunset from Taos, New Mexico. Heading into the grocery store delayed for a few moments.

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

Grand View, Moonrise Over Vallecito Peak

Grand view of thanksgiving eve moon rising over Vallecito Peak, in the Sangre de Cristo range of the Rocky Mountains. I wanted to share this grand view that we saw from the highway that runs north – south  from where we live, across the mesa, toTaos. Here’s the image I posted from that day. This expansive scene captivated me upon a second review of the shots I made after I stitched these three images together. It’s a big, beautifully panorama of the mountains of northern New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G

Golden Sunlight, El Prado Trees

Golden sunlight, El Prado trees. Through the trees in El Prado (the meadows), we caught a glimpse of Taos Mountain, back there, emerging from the clouds. As we pulled out of the gas station, just across the street, we had enough time to grab a few shots of this scene before it was gone. I hope it was a good day in your world today. It was brilliant right here in the golden sunlight. Thanks for looking. G
