Where They Live

Bighorns by the side of the road

Again, not a telephoto shot but simply through the open car window with an iPhone 6s Plus

This is the context shot for the herd of bighorn sheep referred to in the previous post. I don’t know how high the top of that cliff is in the background, but 800-900 feet might cover it. Too high to jump off and play tricks, anyway. (Lord have mercy!) The Rio Grande itself flows right [...]

Clear Water

It all started with the magic energy field generated by a visit to an artist in the canyon. Even before dropping down a thousand feet to Embudo, we hit a dimensional shift.

Maybe I’ll wake up and that’s what I’ll think. For everything to be completely fresh, how wonderful, when all the old myths fall away and nothing drowns me in the morning. A time when I was out here (not this time) I saw a smallish bird I’d never seen before. Some kind of flycatcher, I’d [...]
