New Mexico

After being here for only about 7 months, I have managed to see and photograph some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. You probably have heard many people speak of the “light” here and thought, well that sounds nice but is it really true? Believe me, it is. Especially in the northern part of the state, but not excluding some beautiful areas to the south. But timing is everything. Waiting just a minute or two can cost you the beautiful golden late day light shining through the pink and orange sunset to illuminate Taos Mountain.

Fall is the best time since the fall colors are spectacular, but winter, given there is snow, is also good. Subjects vary from traditional landscapes, which are extremely varied; architecture, including oft photographed churches and pueblos; and of course the people who are just as varied as the landscape.

Here are a few of my recent photographs of areas near Taos:
