Bachelor Rams, Taos Mountain

Bachelor Rams, on the west rim with the Taos mountains as a backdrop. That’s Taos Mountain (Pueblo Peak) on the right, with much needed rain falling directly on the peak. The Bighorn Sheep, all rams, are a band roaming the west rim of the Rio Grande Gorge. If you would like to join me on a photo tour/workshop we will visit all the usual locations and see if we can spot them. The second image shows how close we got to them grazing along the roadside. They seem to enjoy the lush plants that get runoff from the rains on the highway. Thanks for looking. G

Rainbow, Taos Mountains. On the road home the storm recedes leaving the landscape bathed in the special light New Mexico is known for and the prerequisite rainbow. I’ll post the full rainbow on tomorrows photo of the day. Thanks for looking. G

Stretch Gate With Snow Melt

Stretch gate with snow melt, at the Taos Pueblo Reservation, on the road to Arroyo Hondo. There will probably be more from this location, down the road, as it’s my version of Monet’s hay stack series. Please indulge me. Yesterday the snow melted and filled the cattle guard. Today, temperatures didn’t rise much above 27 degrees fahrenheit. Thanks for looking. G
