Go Tell It on the Mountain

Taos Mountain

Sacred to Taos Pueblo and forever condo-free

Taos Mountain, that is. Except you can’t. Go there, I mean, much less beat on a tamborine and scare the elk. But I can extend my vision across the valley with a telephoto shot and zoom in on the end result. This always blows my mind once I download the image onto the iMac and buff it up a wee in Photoshop: my God, it looks like that? Well yes, actually, and to think I only had to walk about 200 yards from home to aim the Pentax. As for the rest of you, if you have an iPad or any other Retina screen device, you can move in even closer on the sacred mountain. These posts are configured to serve your gadget double-sized images (@2x) that look sharp when you zoom in. Works better on a subject that’s not so far away, of course.

    I’m digging the new site/look.

      It makes me feel good just to look at a paragraph all naked in the white space! Stick around, I’m going to have fun here.

    New site looks great. Negative space is a good thing!
    Write on, write on.

    Stunning photo. Can hardly wait to see what’s ahead in 2013!
    Is this a new camera, as well?

      Hi, Sunday! Glad you like it. No, the same old Pentax DSLR. It’s all in what you point it at! (And I haven’t forgotten about that other business. I’ll send you an email.)
