We are never short of spectacular sunsets around here and this is another one for my burgeoning sunset photo archive. This was our view as we left San Luis, Colorado last night. Yes, I know it was in Colorado, but the very southern edge of that state still looks more like northern New Mexico than what most people think of when they think of Colorado.

We took the long way back from Denver a few days back and explored around the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge in eastern New Mexico. We were the only "humans" there for the couple hours that we were driving around the area. The amount of wildlife there was amazing though. This particular scene was especially memorable in that I had stopped to photograph a juvenile hawk in a tree near the road. The bird was fine for a while as I watched it pruned some of it's baby feathers away, but then it started to screach...a lot. I could hear other hawks in the distance making the same sound. Within a couple minutes.....mom & dad hawks had arrived, and were not to happy. I mentioned to Chris right then that she needed to be out of the way in case I had to dive back into the truck. Right then both mom & dad jumped up off of the branch and screached......right as I was snapping some pictures. But in my haste of bailing out of the way, I managed some shots of some tail feathers and a lot of blue sky. Scared the crap out of me!!!

I was at Taos Pueblo a couple weeks back, early in the morning, with some storm clouds still hanging around from the previous night's rain. I was walking around trying to find a dramatic scene that could use the clouds for that little extra effect. These crosses in the cemetery caught my eye. Hopefully the impact I was looking for comes through in the image to you.

About a year ago this was the sky and color that blanketed Taos. I have titled this image "Lightning & Harley".
I was going through some of my older images this week to find one that I thought would work well with the new Amore' Fine Art Gallery "Grand Opening" coming up on August 21st. This one grabbed me. It will be all framed and ready for a new home in a couple weeks. Check out the event information below:

The response I received from everyone for last week's "Photo of the Week" was so overwhelming that I thought...."Why not, let's do it again". This weeks image was taken just a little farther down the road from last week's image and a little later during the same evening sunset. I hope you enjoy this one just as much.
