Cranes at Sunset, Bernardo

Cranes at Sunset in Bernardo

I have a couple of new cameras, one of which can capture 4K video. So I went down to Bernardo to take crane photos a few weeks ago and shot some 4K video as well. As you’ll see below, video is not my strength. Despite that, I do feel it captured the absolutely mesmerizing quality of the cranes flying in at sunset. That sound is some of the most beautiful music I’ve ever heard.

View from Highway 550

Somewhere Between San Ysidro and Cuba

One of my all-time favorite stretches of road: US Highway 550, between San Ysidro and Cuba. I took this photo a couple of days ago. It’s an extraordinarily late/slow fall — chamisa (in the left foreground) usually doesn’t bloom this late.

Red Rocks and Chamisa

The chamisa (aka “rabbitbrush” in every other western state) is already blooming up in the Rio Chama Valley, close to Christ in the Desert Monastery.


Meadow View With Wild Irises

Irises high in the Sandias

One of my all-time favorite views (I probably post a photo of this area every single summer), this time with late-blooming irises. Seems like everything bloomed pretty late this year.
