Changing grape leaves against a background of red Virginia Creeper in Chimayó. This is one of my all-time favorite color combinations.
Yellow leaves and green reflections about a month ago, in Fred Baca Park in Taos.
I stopped by the Santuario de Chimayó a few weeks ago. I hadn’t been there for some years — it had become a bit too busy and commercial for my taste. I was driving to Taos that day and saw the turnoff, and made a split-second decision to visit. There were fewer people there that day and it was very peaceful — one of the positive effects of COVID-19, perhaps — and I was glad I’d made the sudden decision to turn off the highway.
The Rocky Mountain maples in the Manzanos were a blaze of color a few weeks ago.
Dried teasels along the banks of the Rio Grande in Pilar.
