An evening rain storm soaks the valleys on the west face of the Colombine Hondo Wilderness Study Area just a few miles northeast of Taos right after sunset. A slew of other shots of the Colombine Hondo can be found here. What else is there to say? ##
Just after dawn these early spring days, the air is perfectly still and the sound of Red-winged black birds fills the air.

A brief snowstorm appeared from some thick, pink clouds and my exhausted, jet-lagged brain just gave up. As I trudged back to my friend Rasmus’ flat I saw [...]
Tusas Mountains west of Taos, New Mexico.
These were both taken in El Prado, New Mexico on December 11, 2011. A part of Taos, New Mexico, USA.
Taos, New Mexico got its second hit of winter over night. In the lower elevations accumulations was less than 1/2 inch but the high country got dumped on – over 10 inches in the Taos Ski Valley. The storm is moving off with a slow but steady rise in temperatures today. Winter is coming after [...]
