Time Warp Weather

winter-like sky on April 3rd in Taos, NM

Supposed to be seventy in less than a week!

Not really, of course, just typical April carrying-on at this latitude and 7,000 feet. But this does feel weird, because we’ve had months of above normal temperatures and hardly any precipitation at all. Day after day of big, bright sun. I’ve been hiking in my shorts for weeks!

The sky is generally the most dramatic part of the landscape here when there are clouds. Looking at this, it occurs to me that I’m really missing out by not producing panoramas. Damn place is such a drug. April in el Norte, not so much. And I’ve seen it snowing on the hummingbirds in May.

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.

      Just stick the camera out the door and shoot. New Mexico makes this stuff look easy. 🙂
