Gone to Seed

Dried Sunflowers

Sunflowers, gone to seed, along the Jemez River — with a backdrop of yellow cottonwoods.


Storm Clouds and Aspens

Storm Clouds and Aspens

Aspens, ponderosas, and storm clouds in the northern part of the Jemez, near San Pedro Parks Wilderness. It’s been an unusual fall in many ways: the aspens didn’t really turn colors until mid-October (usually they change around the beginning of the month). At the same time, it’s been quite a bit chillier than usual. I took this photo on October 18 — just 9 days ago — and got snowed on about an hour before this moment.


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.


Pink/Purple Mariposa Lily

Pink/Purple Mariposa Lily

Probably the most beautiful mariposa lily I have ever seen. Usually they are white or pale pink. I have never seen one this color outside of Valles Caldera (in the Jemez).
