Even More Clouds

Clouds at the base of Picuris Peak near Taos, NM.

Can’t knock mountains just outside the door, no sir

The things you can do with a telephoto lens! I love being able to pull in a scene like this. This is a shot of the hills at the base of Picuris Peak. From our location, that means you’re looking south. Basically, I just walked to the top of the driveway and there it was. Some idiot was going to develop this area a few years back, and a bunch of us stopped it. One of the best things I ever helped do—that, and saving the Valle Vidal from fracking. Wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t have to keep fighting the same battle over and over?

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.
