April Snow in New Mexico

El Morro National Monument

El Morro National Monument

Though I was surprised to see snow when I stepped out of my camping trailer, it did provide for a fun experience photographing snow in an unexpected place.

Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you.

  3. All of your landscape shots are fabulous, Bo. Very “Ansel Adamsy” in composition. I would think he would love them.

  4. Beautiful…Spring is definitely continuing to be elusive.

  5. That is lovely!
    It was snowing here in New England >.< a week ago.

  6. So that is El Morro…I like the photo.

  7. You really took good advantage of a lucky monent! Great photo!

  8. Geez… you traveled such a long distance south to get away from the snow and what do you find? However, it is a very beautiful picture.

  10. Funny comment from Preston. 8)

    We’ve had some chilly nights and mornings. Every morning we get up and peer out at the pasture. Did it freeze??

    But today and yesterday it hit 80. Whew. Too hot.
