Northern New Mexico WPC

Tour Guide

The theme of this weeks WordPress photo-challenges (WPC) is “Tour Guide: What do you love about where you live? Show us!”

This is where I live: the high desert, 7-10k ft, in the Southwest US of northern and central New Mexico. What I wanted to show is the big sky, quality of light and rugged solitude landscape everywhere I turn. This is a place to get out into the environment and just go.

  1. The locations of this particular selection of landscapes vary from Albuquerque up to Cuyamungue, north of Santa Fe. Based on your request, I will add a short location label to each one to help you and other traveling photographers map where each was from. The one you mentioned is of the Sandia Mtn. crest ‘north rim ‘ looking from the Rio Grande bosque area in north Albuquerque. Thanks for your comment.

  2. lovely landscapes, especially with that dusting of snow in the last one! can i ask where you took these? one place or more than one? i often travel to new mexico (but only to roswell). I’m hoping to branch out and explore NM more- it’s a state that’s foreign to me but has some beautiful landscapes that i look forward to exploring. thanks!

  3. I LOVE Chaco Canyon. Camped there back in ’91 and had a very cool dream involving those ruins, though they weren’t ruins in my dream.

  4. Beautiful photos. I miss New Mexico and its beautiful desert views. (I never lived there, just visited Gallup, Farmington, Native American ruins)
