Forest Rd 79 this time with clouds

New Mexico landscapes are really cloud-scapes. With horizons as wide and they sky a big as it is, clouds are really an integral part of the scene. They promised us snow, but it didn’t come. Instead we got some clouds which is an improvement I am happy to take advantage of. Along the way I met a local and we […]

An afternoon walk on Forest Rd 79 Santa Fe

This route takes you immediately away from […]

Texture means detail and detail requires large size to be appreciated, which explains why I opted for large images even though I run the risk of making all flaws […]

Colorful New Mexico

A few days ago I came across the newly released photo book “Sam Shepard: New Mexico”. Much like many road pictures taken along route 66 most images where in black and white celebrating the vast landscapes of New Mexico. In general pop culture focuses on the barren landscape with its impoverished looking pueblos. Ansel Adams “Moon rise over Hernandez, New […]
