The New Mexico Landscape - In Color!






Many of you enjoyed my earlier black and white shots of the New Mexico landscape...well it's even more beautiful in living color! Many of these were taken along the famous Turquoise Trail. I hope you enjoy these - I'd love to know which one is your favorite. :)

Be sure and click on the photos for a larger view.

I think that graveyard image is awesome!

The contrast between the warm, smooth adobe, the craggy and dusty graves and the moist incoming storm is marvelous.

I think the clouds in the first one are my favorite, but the overall picture in the second one is my favorite of them all. Beautiful colors!

Those backlit conditions are always such a challenge to photograph, but these are wonderful!

The first and third ones for me. I have seen both of those skies when I was there so it has a wonderful welcoming feeling to an old memory. Awesome photos...thank you!

Thanks everyone!

I was trying to figure out what exactly it felt like to see your images. Today, as I marveled at your work, they definitely evoke something so strong and personal in me. And it came to me; they tell a story, one of paradise and happy endings. A world I wish I could literally step right into and live within because life then would be truly wonderful!

They are an artist's dream and endeavors to capture what real beauty is. You have a gift few posses. Beautiful and outstanding work David!
Warm regards, Laurie

You did a great job of capturing the beauty of New Mexico. I had the pleasure of visiting Taos and Santa Fe last year. I'm with Sheila; I love the graveyard image and it is so New Mexico.
