Greetings from San Cristobal, NM. This week, under a full moon rise, as seen from our driveway. The dark shapes of the Sangre de Cristo foothills and the deep blue of a New Mexico crisp and clear sky made the full moon appear its brightest. Later that night the light from the moon kept me awake for a couple of hours from 1:30 to 3:30 am. So I played solitaire on the phone and eventually fell asleep from boredom!
Let’s call this “anatomy of a moon rise.” Click on images to enlarge.
I love our commute to Taos from San Cristobal. I’ve said it many times, and I never tire of it. I shot the image below last night on the way home. There are more spectacular moments, but I enjoyed the way the tip of the peak was lit up.
This image with the horses is from March 2014. We had lunch and a view similar to this yesterday, almost 2 years to the day.
This is the view of Taos Mountain mid-winter shot in El Prado (the meadows), a flashback to 2013.
As always, thank you for looking. G
