A Drive...

I went for a drive through northern New Mexico a couple of months ago.  I went from flat, sage covered mesa land up towards San Antonio Mountain, near which I saw a handsome red horse standing down a lonesome dirt drive.  An extinct volcano about 9 miles south of the Colorado boarder, San Antonio Mountain rises to a height of 10,908 feet.  As I got closer to the mountain, the sky grew stormy, with more and more clouds gathering up above.

Those are super pictures. It is great to see what New Mexico looks like. And the horse is beautiful and also looks well fed. The grass there must be really good.

Wow.. I love looking at the clouds.. It looks so surreal.. Like a painting.. The blue of the sky and the white puffy fat clouds are just so beautiful..

Gorgeous photograph, and I love the contrast between the rather barren earth and the perfectly blue sky. You always have such an interesting perspective in your photos. I wish I knew how to do that!
