Monsoon Season

Monsoon Season

The stretch of Highway 550 between Cuba and San Ysidro is one of my very favorites. I was driving home along it a few weeks ago, and loved the way the clouds were spattering light and shadow across the landscape. I stopped, ran across the road, and took a few shots. This is the one I liked best.


East Fork of the Jemez

East Fork of the Jemez

Probably my all-time favorite body of water, and while I know it’s grandiose to say that about a little stream, it is my favorite. It was very lush in that part of the Jemez when a friend and I went up a few weeks ago.


Hamilton Mesa Aspens, Near and Far

Hamilton Mesa Aspens, Near and Far

I went up to Hamilton Mesa, in the Pecos, for the first time this fall. I chose one of the most glorious days possible for the hike and enjoyed every moment of it. (The drive up to Iron Gate trailhead, not so much.)


Fogon Canyon Corral in Fall

Fogon Canyon Corral

The Fogon Canyon Corral, in the Jemez, is one of the most interesting places ever. It’s an old corral that used the tuff wall of the canyon as one side of the corral. I somehow managed to get there at the peak of the fall colors this year.


Grape Leaves and Virginia Creeper

Grape Leaves and Virginia Creeper, Fall Edition

Changing grape leaves against a background of red Virginia Creeper in Chimayó. This is one of my all-time favorite color combinations.
