GOLDEN HOUR, TAOS

It's that magic time when the sun is low on the horizon, and all is bathed in a warm, soft, golden glow.

Morning or evening, it is every photographer's favorite time of day.

I've been photographing these trees for years and finally, a couple of days ago, the light, the clouds and their shadows on Taos Mountain all came together in just the way I had so long envisioned.

Patience, luck, and an ever ready iPhone with a bit of processing with the Snapseed app, and there you have it.

EL MEZE SUNSET

We had an excellent dinner last night, at El Mèze restaurant, with our dear friends from Chicago, Charles and Jeanette White. After dinner, on our way back to the car, I turned around and saw this. Once again I was fortunate to have the camera I can occasionally talk on, in my shirt pocket. Out it came, and here you see the result! I hope you enjoy!

We drove a couple of new Kachina paintings down to the Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe today for their Indian Market show . On the drive back to Taos, we were treated to this beautiful sunset over the Jemez Mountains.
