Photo of the Week - January 28, 2013



We were heading down to Santa Fe for the day from Taos, driving through Pilar along the Rio Grande River. We noticed what we thought we two rather large birds in a tree on the opposite side of the river (60 MPH highway). I quickly turned around at the first pull out, pulled out my long lens & camera and saw these two posing for everyone driving along the highway. I headed back up the highway to find a place to pull-off of the road and get closer to the eagles. Unfortunately there were no pull-offs and the sides of the road were pure slush & mud. So I checked for traffic (luckily none) and got 6 shots of them through the side window of the car. Lucky me, no blur from hand shake.

Photo of the Week - January 21, 2013



This image is from a couple years back during a trip through southern New Mexico. We were there on such a bright sunny day...so bright, it almost hurt to look at the white sands dunes that totally encompass every square inch around you. The skies were such a dark blue that the contrast between the two made everything around you look like a moonscape. This image is of one of the covered picnic tables in the park. Looking back at the images from that day, I need to get back down there sometime soon.

Photo of the Week - January 14, 2013


We had a beautiful snow storm this last New Year's Eve. This image was taken down the street from our home in Taos. I loved the dusting of all of the tree branches and fence line in this scene. It was a little brisk this morning (sub zero) and I was taking the picture from the nearby roadway. Some people drove by giving me a "questionable" eye as I stood outside in the cold with my camera. Ah...the things I will do to get the shot. You other photographers out there know what I mean!!

Photo of the Week - January 7, 2013



This was taken a few weeks back, right after a storm had dropped the first large snow of the season. There are only a couple of roads into and out of the village of Arroyo Seco and they all have varying and different views of this picturesque part of New Mexico. This view with the willows and church steeple has brought me back a few times since I took this image. Hope you like it also.
