A sure sign that fall is on its way: globemallow flowers and buds by the roadside in the Jemez. The purple background is one of the largest clusters of desert 4 o’clocks I’ve ever seen.
Panchuela Creek, a lovely little stream in the Pecos Wilderness. I can’t wait to go back.
An approaching thunderstorm threatens late summer sunflowers in the Jemez.
I’ve always loved sunflowers (I may have mentioned this before, possibly ad infinitum) but I’ve developed a bit of an obsession the last couple of years with those that are on their way out. They exude happiness (at least to my eyes), even as they fade.
A particularly colorful sunset a week ago, seen from Highway 14 near Golden. Cabezon is just to the right of the setting sun.
