Carved Angel

This is an old carved wooden angel plaque at the neighbors house. I love the weathered patina.

Hope for Ski Santa Fe

Today the clouds have mostly cleared and you can see the snow a little better covering the mountain tops. I hope this means that Ski Santa Fe will be able to open soon.

Snow Covered Sangre de Cristos

Well the clouds lifted a bit off the mountains from yesterday and revealed the Snow Topped Sangre de Cristos. Isn't it a beautiful site.

Snow Storm Over the Sangre de Cristos

I woke up Thanksgiving morning to these misty clouds hovering over the Sangre de Cristos. I was hoping that it was a major snow storm just piling the mountain with the white stuff.

Silhouetted Sunset

I was sitting on the porch this evening enjoying a cool end to the day. I was able to watch and photograph this incredible sunset as it appeared behind this tree.

Porcelain Girl

Another day where I wasn't feeling like I could do much with my eye surgery. So I again did some searching around the house and came across this beautiful porcelain girl.

Pink Geraniums

We have a bunch of geraniums blooming in the porch. It is like a little greenhouse. All the plants there are looking fantastic.

Feathery Clouds

The clouds today were just beautiful. I got this picture of feathery clouds a little before sunset. I just love the formation.

Silk Roses

I had eye surgery recently and I am not able to get out as much to take pictures. I looked around the house and found these silk roses. I know it isn't the greatest picture - but I think it came out okay.

Beautiful Mexican Jay

We have had lots of birds visiting our ponds. I got this picture of a Mexican Jay - he looks like he is the sentry for all the other birds hanging out at the pond.

Scintillating Sunset

Here is another of those spectacular New Mexican sunsets. I could just photograph the New Mexico sky and never run out of photo opportunities.

Lilac Buds

Today I noticed a few buds on the Lilac bushes. I thought that winter was here and had killed everything but I guess I was wrong. The last few days have been more spring like.

Mint Leaves

It seems that winter has pretty much arrived in New Mexico. Everything in our yard is dead except the Mint. It seems that this mint can't be killed or at least put dormant during the winter.

Sunset Through the Trees

I was sitting on the porch watching the sun set when I noticed the Sunset behind these trees. I just loved the silhouette that was produced.

Winter Aspens

I was walking on the property today and noticed these sparse Aspens against the brilliant blue of the New Mexico sky. I just loved it.

Christmas Cactus

Our Christmas Cactus has started to bloom. I always love to see these beautiful flowers on this cactus plant. I am looking forward to the next few weeks of these blooms.

Roadrunner! I'll Get You Yet!

This morning before work I was sitting in the living room drinking coffee and I looked out the window to find this early morning visitor. This absolutely beautiful coyote was just outside my living room window. The look just says "Roadrunner! I'll Get You Yet!

Watercolor Sunset

Tonight I took a walk and waited for the sun to set. It was absolutely wonderful - it looked just like a watercolor painting - that's why I called this post Watercolor Sunset.

Just a Little Birdie

This afternoon I was sitting on the porch enjoying the day and this little bird was sitting on the portal just watching me. I thought I was suppose to do the bird watching.

Veteran's Day

Since today was Veteran's Day I thought I would go to the National Cemetery and take some pictures. I was fully expecting the place to be full of flags. Much to my disappointment there were not any. I found a few lone flags at a few gravesites but that was it. But I still enjoyed my walk through the cemetery.

It Snowed!

This morning I woke up to a beautiful snowfall. The flakes were huge and they just floated down to the ground. It didn't snow very much or for very long but it did blanket the ground in white and was a beautiful way to start the day.

Storm Over the Sandias

This evening I noticed these huge clouds moving over the Sandia Mountains in Albuquerque. I got the camera and got a few photos before the sun set.

Glass Paperweight

I was taking pictures around the house again today. I found this paperweight on a shelf and I liked the colors and design. So I placed it on a table with a little sun shining on it. This is what I got.

Warehouse 21 Artwork

I took this picture while walking around the Santa Fe Railyard area. This mural is on the side of Warehouse 21. I really like the optical illusion feel it has to it.

Thursday, November 6, 2008


I had a very long and busy day at work today and I didn't much feel like going anywhere to take pictures. So when I got home I started looking for things around the house that I could photograph. I found this Kachina and took it outside in the late afternoon sun. I like the way it turned out.

Old Wooden Cross

I took a drive today and stopped in an old cemetery. I walked around and read tombstones. But this one caught my eye. No writing, no marble, no fancy carvings - just an Old Wooden Cross. I have noticed while exploring different cemeteries that there are a lot of symbols on or near graves - I have always wondered what these cemetery symbols stand for.

National Cemetery

After voting today I had to run errands in town. I was passing the National Cemetery and I decided to stop. The way the markers are precisely lined up always makes a good picture. As I was taking pictures I wondered what all of these people who have served their country would feel about today's election.

Indian Paintbrush

I did a little walking on the property this afternoon and was a little worried that I might not have a picture for today. Then I went around a few junipers and I saw this little spot of color. I was surprised to find this lone Indian Paintbrush in full bloom.

A Little Fall Color at Cerrillos Hills

I took a hike today at Cerrillos Hills Historic Park. It was a great day for a leisurely hike. I came across this view while on the Elkins Canyon Trail - what wonderful fall color.

Perfect Fall Flower

During my afternoon walk today I passed a wooden planter filled with these beautiful yellow and red flowers. I thought they were the perfect flowers to see on a wonderful fall day. I think they are some sort of mum but I am not sure.
