Thank You, Albuquerque The Magazine!

I would like to thank Albuquerque The Magazine for selecting my photograph, “Sky Light – Albuquerque Double Rainbow,” as the winner of the October Photo Contest.

This was taken across the parking lot at UNM Continuing Education on the last night of a class in “Digital SLR Techniques.” Thank you to the instructor, Richard Nunez, for many things, and for giving us a class break right at the perfect moment!


New Sky Series: Sky Light II

This photograph is the first in a new series of skyscapes.

Photographs in the Sky Light I series were “grounded” – although mostly sky, something in the photograph tied the viewer to the earth.

In the Sky Light II series, the viewer is allowed – indeed, encouraged – to let thoughts to soar beyond the grounded earth. I hope you enjoy the skyscapes to come in this new series.

Summer Afternoon Sky

Sunsets here are so spectacular, that sometimes I forget to mention how beautiful our skies are most of the time most days. This was yesterday afternoon, just an ordinary day in the Desert Southwest.
