Taos Mountain, Spring Clouds, Sunshine

Taos Mountain, spring clouds, sunshine, feels good with a slight breeze and scent of sage. It is beautiful out there this spring despite the current situation. And, as I said recently, there’s a lot of out there, out there. Be safe, be safer. Thanks for looking. G

Adobe Studio, Ladder, Cloud

Adobe studio, ladder, with slight cloud iridescence, just as I found it yesterday during a photo shoot at the Couse-Sharp Historic Site in Taos, New Mexico. If you’re in Taos this summer stop in for a visit. The abundance of history at the Couse-Sharp Historic Site here in northern NM will astound you. Thanks for looking and stay tuned for more images to come in the not too distant future. G

El Salto, El Prado, Winter Light

El Salto rocks, El Prado, bathed in winter light. Pull over on the shoulder. Find a vantage point through the trees, wait for the cattle to separate with a little space between them so they resemble cattle and not clumps of coal. There you have it. Another beautiful vista on the drive home. Thanks for looking. G

Texture, Corbels, Vigas, Shadows, Taos, NM

Texture, Corbels, Vigas, and Shadows, Kit Carson Road, Taos, NM. There’s plenty of this kind of thing around New Mexico, and especially in the northern half of the state. Perhaps a new tagline for this part of the state might be “the land of long shadows”. At this time of year “golden” or “magic” hour lasts  longer than most places, and art history in the area reaches back long before Europeans landed. Thanks for looking. G

Drive By Shooting, Building Façades

Drive by shooting of building façades from the highways of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. I have been putting together a collection of images, many of which depict façades that are gone and others that no longer represent their original selves. This building is just north of Taos and is currently covered in grafitti! Back then I liked it’s simplicity and hand made doors . Thanks for looking. G

Rio Pueblo Gorge, Morning Light

Rio Pueblo Gorge, bathed in morning light, north of the confluence of the Rio Grande. Mornings in northern New Mexico can begin in one of many fabulous locations. Pick a place and go there. Chances are you will be the only person there. Join me on a photo tour and I’ll share some of these spots with you. Thanks for looking. G

Vallecito Mountain, Moonrise, Taos, NM

Vallecito (little valley), Mountain, Moonrise, Taos, NM. A couple of quick images out of the car window on the road home this evening. I was on a very beautiful, but very chilly, photo shoot on the west rim of the Rio Grande Gorge earlier. At this point I was quite happy to sit in the car with the heat blasting, some soft tunes playing and watching this gorgeous moon rise over the peaks. Thanks for looking. G

Tipi Sky, Ranchos De Taos, New Mexico

Tipi sky, Ranchos De Taos, New Mexico. Digging in the archives and clearing out the virtual stuffed closet today I found this image of the tipis, south of Taos, near where I used to live. In the evening, around sunset, I would pop down the road, a mile or so from home, to watch and wait as the scene unfolded. Thanks for looking. G

Curbside Life, Taos, New Mexico

Curbside life, on a side street in Taos, New Mexico. Depending in which direction you are walking on this street, the sidewalk begins or ends here. The weeds grow where they will. Thanks for looking. G
