Almost every trip over to Abiquiu I have to take the extra detour over to see if that particular day will give me the right light and background to make a nice image of this iconic northern New Mexico building. This last Sunday was worth the extra drive. The storm clouds really added the contrast I love to see in this image and the light was near perfect.

For once I am ahead of schedule for my Photo of the Week image....but only cause the next couple days are really busy and I force myself to get it out beforehand. This image was from last night sunset and the crescent moon that was beginning to set with Jupiter just to the lower right of the moon. The last couple evenings have been beautiful times to be out and around here in Taos.

This is our third year of driving up in March to see the Sandhill migration through the San Luis Valley area of Colorado. The birds and the area never disappoint. There were 1000's of both Sandhill Cranes and Canadian Geese along with a smattering of some local birds and raptors.....a camera owner's and nature lover's dream.

This is another of my images out of Ghost Ranch of Chimney Rock. Some of you might have guessed this is one of my favorites places to photograph. This was from a week back right after the huge snow storm we had in Taos. I headed the next day down to Ghost Ranch expecting to find snow covered rocks and cliffs only to find little if any snow in the whole area. New Mexico is a strange place especially with weather...as the saying goes, "If you don't like the weather right now, wait a couple minutes and it will change".

The last few days have brought more snow than I can remember here in Taos over the 9 years we have been here. What it gave me and my camera an endless amount of snow covered subjects. Yesterday was the first day in quite a few where the storm seemed to be subsiding and some blue sky was starting to poke through. This image has a "little" blue sky but what I liked best was the hint of orange from the sunset that lasted only a few minutes and small amount of light hitting the top of the mountain.
