There are still a few mallards, coots, and Canada geese left in this Rio Grande Bosque pond. This is a very classic central New Mexican winter scene — i.e., with muted colors despite the golden light — which makes me long for spring.
Snow geese on their way north, the first time I’ve seen them in a couple of years.
A quick-moving storm dropped a bunch of snow on the Sandia mountains and foothills earlier this week. It melted almost as quickly as it had arrived. 🙂
Late afternoon at Elena Gallegos Picnic Area a few weeks ago. The Sandias seem to have even more watermelon color in the winter.
