Take a Look Around

Sunset from our porch
It's no secret: New Mexico is a photogenic place. Photographers love the early morning and the evening light; and the mountains, skies, rivers, and the desert all provide amazing scenery.

I hope you will check out New Mexico Magazine's online photo tours. They are featuring some delicious chile photos from the harvest that is taking place right now (I can see the local pickers across the road as I type this), the winners from their annual photo contest; and tours of Native American ruins and petroglyphs, historical spots like El Rancho de Las Golondrinas, and ranches that will give you a glimpse at modern-day cowboy life. The show starts here. Prepare to spend some time clicking and oohing and aahing!

Sun, silence, and adobe - that is New Mexico in three words.
~Charles F. Lummis, in The Land of Poco Tiempo, 1928

It's no secret among all of my family and friends as I have told everyone I know to go spend some time in your beautiful state!

I don't know if I could handle the magazine. I might just want to jump in the van and take off.

A beautiful sunset for sure. I love your new header too. It looks so warm and inviting.

Lovely skies we have, indeed. Thanks for the links... wonderful photography. I am going to the Chile Festival in Hatch this year! :) And I did get a green chile burger at Sparky's on my way here a few weeks ago... yum!
