Valdez, New Mexico, the Church of San Antonio in this little mountain village. The snow piled up during the last snow storm. A local in the village told us that they measured 28 inches of snow during the last storm. Some of it has been pushed up against the corner of the building. The rest of the snow is fast turning the dirt roads to mud! Welcome to New Mexico in the spring. It is a beautiful building, proudly attended to by the members of the community of Valdez. Thanks for looking. G

Estaca Chapel, New Mexico. I made a little road trip today along the Rio Grande to Estaca, New Mexico. This little chapel was glowing in the afternoon winter sunshine. Traveling with my good friend and photographer R David Marks, I was inspired to make a black and white image at this place. It was another good day in good company. Thanks for looking. G

Church in Vallecito, New Mexico.  La Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores. A beautiful day for a drive with good friend and photographer Mark Collins, to Vallecito, Petaca, La Madera, Cañon Plaza, and Abiquiu. This view was through the one broken window in the gates to the church yard. Thanks for looking. G
