Plaza Blanca Slot

Plaza Blanca Slot Canyon

I went up to the Abiquiu area two weekends ago. I had a bad case of spring fever and being there helped alleviate it. My timing was excellent — even by last weekend I’d adopted “social distancing” enough that I wouldn’t have gone. Theoretically, I could still go out and about … but somehow it doesn’t seem like a good idea.

I went to Plaza Blanca all three days I was there. Canyon country seems to change dramatically every day so it was always a new experience.

For whatever reason, COVID-19 has dropped much more activity into my lap rather than less, so there are still many photos left to be processed from that trip. I am grateful that my life remains rich (although perhaps not so much in the photography realm) but am looking forward to a bit of a break at some point.

Hope all is well with you and your loved ones!

A classic O’Keeffe country scene, with Cerro Pedernal in the background.


Bosque Pond at Golden Hour

Bosque Pond at Golden Hour

There are still a few mallards, coots, and Canada geese left in this Rio Grande Bosque pond. This is a very classic central New Mexican winter scene — i.e., with muted colors despite the golden light — which makes me long for spring.


Recycled Roadrunner at Sunset

Recycled Roadrunner at Sunset

A very large recycled roadrunner (with wings made of crutches!) overlooks the Organ Mountains at sunset. You can read more about it here (I think it’s brilliant!).


Snow in the Sandias

Snow in the Sandias

A quick-moving storm dropped a bunch of snow on the Sandia mountains and foothills earlier this week. It melted almost as quickly as it had arrived. 🙂
