New Mexico Redux

Come back amigo no matter where you go
To the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico.[+]

I came back to New Mexico for a week and a bit after my time in Texas. My third and shortest visit in nine months. It was hard to leave. It keeps getting harder to leave.

    Ah, I wasn’t sure you had managed to capture that couple on the motorcycle; that was some pretty quick shooting. :)

    And that Taos Mountain, that would be Wheeler Peak.

    1. charlene says:

      Good spotting on your part. We make a decent shooting team! (esp where the “doh!” photos are concerned).

      Thanks for Wheeler Peak!

    A great grouping that captures the beauty and adventure of N. NM – was that last shot a double exposure? After a year-long stint in E. Texas, we are finally headed back to our beloved friends and Carrizozo, NM this month. Thank you for getting my juices flowing with heightened anticipation.

    1. charlene says:

      Very glad I was able to do that for you. You must be excited (in fact, I will add my excitement for you into the mix) :) That last shot was just a cloud shot through a dusty windshield.

  3. Love the cloud and pueblo view. Love everything. NM, home of MMR. Means everything even if for some it means nothing. Next time around… I will not be able to leave I think :)

      They don’t call it the Land of Enchantment for nothing. This tends to happen though. Look at what happened to Brian (hi Brian!).

      1. Enchantment and Entrapment – all works! :) Hi Brian :)

      2. Brian Miller says:

        Hi y’all. There is a reason I live here. :))

        We’re converts. We understand!

    Sublime is the word that comes to mind looking at your photographs.

    1. charlene says:

      Thank you sir. You do me honor with your words.

    So enjoying the visual stories you’re telling – I can see so much of your Commute and Night Walking images here, but amped up to the extreme. Superb!

    1. charlene says:

      Thanks Seng :) So much of both those projects still influences what I do now. I guess they were my foundation for personal work.

    Love the sneaky hand in the Tent Rocks image!
