Photo of the Week - May 30, 2011

This weeks image was shot last November west of Paso Robles, California. The entire area around this central California valley is covered with fantastic wineries and vineyards. Late fall is a great time to see the leaves change these great fall colors. This mid morning shot was taken in between two rain storms, which made for the great cloud cover. If you are interested in one of these prints, please check out my web site for this image an all of my other "Photo of the Week" images at:

Photo of the Week - May 23, 2011

View towards Cerro Pedernal from the top of the horseshoe on the main road south of Taos. This tree is arguably one of the most photographed and painted trees in the Taos area. This sunset was particularly stunning in early October, 2008. Check out my other "Photo of the Week" on my web page at:

The graphics and the lettering on this building are great. This is "SO" Route 66........ 1960's. Joe & Aggie's restaurant is in Holbrook, Arizona, right on the original old US Highway 66. I cannot attest to how good the food is, but based on the dated facade and the amount of cars that were in the parking lot, my guess is they are still in business for a reason.

Photo of the Week - May 9, 2011

This weeks image is from the El Rancho de las Golondrinas, a 200 acre living history museum, southwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico. This building is know as "Big Mill from Sapello", and was originally used as a molasses mill. The original rancho buildings were used as a resting stop on the original El Camino Real from Mexico City to Santa Fe. I have had many trips out to this place, and would recommend it highly to anyone visiting the Santa Fe area.

Photo of the Week - May 2, 2011

This picture is from October 2008. We were heading back to California from Taos, through Tucson. It was getting kind of late in the afternoon, knowing we still had 6+ hours of driving left to get back home. Thought I might be able to squeeze a few sunset shots in of the San Xavier de Bac Mission, southwest of Tucson. The light was wonderful, and very few people around. I was near the far east end of the church compound when I thought I would look back to wave and check that Chris was doing okay in the car. She had been setting in the car while I was strolling around the area taking pictures. Seeing that she was out of the car, using her own camera in between jestering towards the east, I couldn't figure out was going on. I started walking towards her, looking over my shoulder every few steps, until I finally saw what she was being so animated about. Could not have asked for a more beautiful moon rise, and in such a wonderful spot. Take a look at my Photo of the Week image at:
