Morning Mountain

Taos Mountain in the clouds

All Retina-screen devices served high-res photos, ya know. Zoom in with clarity!

Yup, had to pull on the emergency cargo pants hanging on the bathroom door and zip up a hoodie to walk down the road before coffee and take this shot. I love the clouds. They also change moment to moment, so I had to hurry. This is of course the taller 12,305 ft peak of Taos Mountain (or Pueblo Peak), cropped from a telephoto image. Snow-capped mountains are amazing things to have around you in the landscape. Fifteen years in Taos. That’s a lot of oh my.

    I love when the clouds hang low like that. Pure magic.

      The cloud/mountain interface is the best thing about this place. Pulls everything together.

    It’s a non-stop show.

    When I was a young guy I spent two summers working on a ranch near Woodland Park, Colorado. The ranch was at 8,300 ft. and located 10 miles north of Pikes Peak. Every morning, first thing I would open the bunkhouse door and look at the peak. It wasn’t uncommon to see it wrapped in clouds. Unforgettable site.

    I particularly love this shot. I’ve kept the link open in my iPhone to look at it whenever I can. It is so sharp & clear I think you would see a skier going down the snowy face if one was there.
