I’ve been studying crane landings this winter. They are all virtually perfect — and beautiful, too. I love the huge wingspread and colors in this photo.
I think of this view as showing the southern end of the Nacimiento mountains — but I might be wrong about that. It might better be characterized as the northern end of the Jemez’s characteristic red rocks and land. Either way, I love the mix of colors and land types in it.
An adorable deer couple I ran into a couple of weeks ago, in the middle of the rut.
The new year brought us rain, snow, and some lovely clouds over the Sandias this evening.
One of my favorite (and oft-photographed) chollas at sunset a few weeks ago.
