Early Winter Greets Fall, Taos, New Mexico

Early winter greets fall on the picturesque Upper Ranchitos Road in Taos, New Mexico. This was how it looked a couple of weeks ago. The trees are now bare and settled into their winter nakedness. Our journey through the season continues. Thanks for looking. G

Sangre De Cristo Mountain, Snows

Sangre de Cristo Mountain snows. Still a lot of snow up there a few days ago in the mountains at the New Mexico, Colorado State Line. And on a stunningly, crystal clear day for a drive during our self imposed quarantine. Home to car, to mountains and back home again. Didn’t see a soul out there, but what’s new? Thanks for looking.

Rainbow, Winter Sun Light, San Cristobal Valley

Rainbow in the winter sun light, the first I’ve seen out in the field in San Cristobal this year. Scenes like this usually show up in the summer monsoons. There happened to be a mix of rain, sleet and snow. It disappeared as quickly as it appeared. Thanks for looking. G

Rio Grande, Lobatos Bridge, Southern Colorado

Rio Grande at the Lobatos bridge crossing in southern Colorado. I spent today with an enthusiastic, talented, and accomplished photographer. I’m honored that I get to share the sites and locations of this enchanted land with many visiting photographers in this place I call home. I love my job. Thanks for looking. G

Winter, Hay Bales, San Luis Valley, CO

Winter, hay bales in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. Flash back to winter this time last year, 2019. These monumental structures are scattered around the San Luis Valley. Some are larger than this. Monolithic hay bales stacked very precisely. Stonehenge comes to mind… all tidied up! Thanks for looking. G

Taos Mountain, Arroyo Hondo, Cottonwood

Taos Mountain, cottonwood, red willows in the Arroyo Hondo valley. I’ve said it before, some times it’s just about what’s there in front of you. This scene presents itself often. So, while the cottonwood is front and center, with scattered homes on the hill sides, it’s not so bad a feast for the eyes. All capped off by Taos Mountain. (Pueblo Peak). Thanks for looking. G

Celtic Stone Cross, Last Snowfall, San Cristobal

Celtic stone cross, last snowfall, San Cristobal, NM. I like it’s shoulder pads and helmet. I think it looks like a samurai, ready to face all comers. Solid in all conditions. I like the warm glow on the stone. I really like Celtic Crosses… Ok! I’m rambling. Thanks for looking. G

Minimalism, in the winter woods today. This solitary shrub drew me deeper in until it was the only thing. Then I made this picture. Thanks for looking. G
