That New Mexico light

That New Mexico light

Today I share a collection of photographs that I took in New Mexico.  I can't believe the light there - I always get such wonderful sunrises and sunsets.  Maybe it's due to some factor I am not aware of, but I don't care.  It helps me get better photos, so I love it!

Exploring Plaza Blanca

Exploring Plaza Blanca

Back in March, we spent some time in Abiquiu, New Mexico and one afternoon went out to explore a nearby spot known as the White Place, or Plaza Blanca.  It's famous for being the favorite local spot and frequent inspiration of famed artist Georgia O'Keeffe, and it's pretty magnificent.  Today's post is a collection of 23 photos I captured while hiking around there one afternoon.  It's almost a lunar landscape, and I think you will enjoy this.  Have a look!

The simple beauty of the mountains

Today I wax a bit poetic about my love for the mountains.  There's just something about them, in addition to the generous amounts of beauty and staggering landscapes.  And of course I share a bunch of photos from a trip to the mountains last summer - when I caught some wonderful clouds over an alpine lake.  Good times!
