Gilman Tunnels

Gilman Tunnels

There was some kind of magic afoot when I visited the Gilman tunnels a couple of weeks ago. It’s generally really hard to get this kind of shot, looking out from one tunnel through the other. Usually there’s a car parked between the tunnels, or people walking up the road, or just wonky light. This time, though, conditions were perfect — including the angle of the sun, more to the north than it is any other time of year.

The tunnels were built about 100 years ago for a logging railroad.


Old Jemez Car

Old Car, Jemez

I love the way the rust on the car is the same color as the surrounding terrain. It’s as if it’s become part of the landscape and the landscape has become part of it.


Ruffled Feathers

Beep-beep!!! A family of roadrunners has moved into (taken over?) my neighborhood. They’re extremely cute little troublemakers.


Cumbres & Toltec Train, Fall Edition

Cumbres & Toltec, Fall Edition

The Cumbres & Toltec train steams through the blazing fall colors of scrub oak and aspen, north of Chama.


Old Gas Station, Northern NM

Old Gas Station, Northern NM

An old gas station — and equally old station wagon — are framed by a classic New Mexican sky and classic New Mexican weeds. It’s been an incredibly dry year so far.
