Tree in Slot Canyon at Tent Rocks National Monument

Erosion has washed away the rocks and soil under the ponderosa pine hanging onto the rock walls in the main slot canyon at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. One of my favorite trees in the world to photograph.

Sandia Mountains and Winter Clouds

After a winter storm dropped a few inches of snow on the Sandia foothills, I stopped along Forest Service Road 333 to photograph this panorama of the light from the setting sun on the clearing storm clouds and Sandia Mountains.

Approaching Winter Storm in New Mexico

Every winter, I try to make time to travel back to New Mexico to visit family around the holidays. I enjoy hiking up into the Sandia Wilderness area east of town to photograph winter storm clouds (and possibly snow) on the mountains. Around Christmas day (2018), I took a few panoramas of the approaching winter storm clouds off to the west over the city. More panoramas of the winter storm coming in the next few weeks.
