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.

Nepali Pine Forest at Sunrise

After coring lakes in the Himalayan foothills, we stayed at a town in the pines on a ridge top. I got up around sunrise and walked along the cliffside highway to take a few photographs of the light through the trees.
