Pieces Of New Mexico // Leaf Dance Photography

Blue sky
Silver-green leaves
Flowers in Grandmother's garden
Misty Mountains
White sand
Organ mountains
Pecan Groves
Fluffy kitties
Sunrise over the mountains

And yes, while we drove through the mountains, I couldn't help thinking about THE Misty Mountain.  ;D

New Mexico Sunset // Leaf Dance Photograpy

After a day of traveling under amazing blue skies with clouds stretching for miles, we arrived at our destination just as the sun sank from the sky, going out in a blaze of gold . . .

And it was a great view all around too, as we had a blazing sunset in the West-

-And pink Organ mountains in the East.  =)

New Mexico // From the car window / Leaf Dance Photography

Yeah, I bring books.
 I bring my drawing tools.
I've even brought my knitting.
But- I just find the changing landscape so fascinating that I almost always end up with my eyes glued to the window, my trigger finger resting on the power button, ready to turn on my camera when I sense a good vista coming up.
(Warning, due to my fascination with clouds, this post is rather cloud heavy, so if clouds bore you, you'll probably want to look at this instead. ;))

And with New Mexico, pretty much everything is a huge vista. The clouds stretch for miles across the sky, layer upon layer, and the mountains recede to a smokey blue in the distance.

The clouds aren't always this showy, but they really outdid themselves this trip, at one point I could count 6 different types of clouds all at once!

You just can't beat that BLUE New Mexic sky  . . .

"the Heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork"

Do you see that line of clouds? Isn't that something? In the city, the houses and buildings block too many clouds to really see any pattern, but out here you get to see the whole formation! =D

We had a lovely sunset that night, which I'll share next!
