And a sunset sky, from the Rio Grande bosque just south of Albuquerque.
As always at this time of the year I’m craving bright colors. I found them the other day at Abuquerque’s Rio Grande Botanic Garden — such a welcome break from the dull browns of a central New Mexican winter.
Really, there’s not tons of color during a central New Mexican winter — except during sunrise and sunset. This sunset shot was taken from the Sandia foothills a few weeks ago.
Alas, the sandhill cranes have already begun their northward migration.
Storm clouds over the Sandias are lit by the setting sun.
