Greetings from San Cristobal, NM. This week on the road in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. I spent a couple of days photo trekking last week discovering new sights and sites with longtime friend, and fellow trekker Ron. There are always new images waiting for us in familiar locations.
If you are planning to visit New Mexico this fall, check out my photo tour/workshops. Lets get started.
Truchas, Trampas, Ranchos De Taos, NM. High Road photography convoy tour continued form my post a few days ago. It was a little too much editing to do all in one go. There is no order of importance or favorite, I posted these and the previous images in the order we discovered then. Enjoy! And thank you for joining me virtually here on my website. G
High Road to Taos with R David Marks yesterday. Black and White is rubbing off on me on this day out on the High Road to Taos, in the mountains of northern New Mexico. It was a good day, lighting wise to make black and white images and in good company. Thanks for looking. G
Tin roof, in the village of Truchas on the High Road to Taos, NM, juxtaposed with the mission church belfry. The roof and building are gone, but the church of Nuestra Señora del Sagrado Rosario remains, beautifully intact and restored. Truchas is a regular stop on the High Road to Taos photography tour. The town and it’s surroundings are the filming location for Robert Redford’s movie of the John Nichol’s book, “Milagro Beanfield War.” Thanks for looking. G
Paint patina, barn doors in Truchas, on the High Road to Taos, New Mexico. Many years ago I drove through Truchas when Robert Redford was filming the Milagro Beanfield War. This magical location still exudes the authenticity that is New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G
High Road Shadows, Truchas, NM. On the High Road to Taos is the mountain town of Truchas, New Mexico where Robert Redford made the movie “Milagro Beanfield War” from the book of the same name by Taos author, John Nichols. John very graciously wrote the foreword in my book for which I will always be grateful. Thank you John, and thanks for looking. G
Barn wood door in the high country. On a cloudy day colors pop and even more so on grey, weather worn, barn wood where the many coats of paint are revealed like peeling back the layers of history. Thanks for looking. G
White cross on the old Truchas Mission Church … Nuestra Señora del Sagrado Rosario in Truchas, NM. It’s always a pleasure to visit this beautifully restored and maintained, architectural gem on the high road to Taos. Thanks for looking. G
Here are a few links to images of this church on the high road to Taos, in my archives.
Truchas adobe home on the high road to Taos in northern New Mexico. One more in the “remnants of authenticity” series. Nothing that says New Mexico like exposed adobe and a tin roof. Thanks for looking. G
