Diablo Canyon revisited

Life got in the way and there have not been many opportunities to got out and shoot. Unfortunately this is not going to change anytime soon but tonight was an exception and it paid of nicely. The skies, the sunset all played along and allowed me to bring some nice images home. Orange filter and … Continue reading Diablo Canyon revisited

Took a long while …

2020 was photographically speaking not the most exciting years, hazy skies from forest fires in the west for most of the summer, monsoon cancelled, winter a no show, until this week and today the clearing winter storm with Ansel Adams like drama in the sky. Of course this happens right on a day when the … Continue reading Took a long while …

Short walk, mostly in Black and White

Just took 2 years to find a nearby trail, popular with locals. A friendly neighbor pointed it out and showed it to me. So I returned another day, when we had least a few clouds. Most likely will require another visit when there is a little more drama in the sky. For now the few … Continue reading Short walk, mostly in Black and White

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 … Continue reading Forest Rd 79 this time with clouds

The road to Apache trail head was gated and the gate was closed. So instead of walking from the trail head I had to walk to it. Either way the … Continue reading An afternoon walk on Forest Rd 79 Santa Fe

LMY (Lamy NM)

In the middle of nowhere lies a small settlement, Lamy station, which to this day is the stop of a 2000 mile Chicago - Los Angeles Amtrak connection. The average speed of this train ride is a comfortable 40 mph. Clearly Amtrak wants to offer its customer some nostalgia and that distinct old time, wild … Continue reading LMY (Lamy NM)

Diablo Canyon NM

This will be a short post. North west of Santa Fe is Diablo Canyon, you reach it on Rt 77, passing through some ranch land and finally stopping at a dramatic gorge. It is the entry way to a nice hike down to the Rio Grande. I headed out there on a grey day but … Continue reading Diablo Canyon NM

New Mexico Golden Hours

Over the past two weeks I got a lucky break and was able to take some quick morning trips, while kids where still sleeping, and an evening trip to do a little shooting in medium format. Of course whenever you leave home the first thing that you encounter are these never ending roads. Along the … Continue reading New Mexico Golden Hours

US HWY 285

As you can see I am taking a short break from my Greek travel posts, to create a post from my morning drive. Usually I get up before sunrise, kids are still sleeping, and for an hour or two I can practice some photography . This morning I headed south on HWY 285. This route … Continue reading US HWY 285
