New Mexico Landscapes

So, for my inaugural blog post, here’s something that’s pretty disconnected from my normal work (geographically and photographically). I wouldn’t call myself and landscape photographer, and I certainly wouldn’t call myself a nature photographer, but going back to northern New Mexico (where I grew up) year after year, it’s impossible not to be totally taken by the natural beauty. The landscapes are striking and the colors are incredible. 

Here is a selection of photos from our recent trip out west. The first few were shot in northern New Mexico, near Española, followed by several more from a quick trip we took to Bosque del Apache, a wildlife preserve about an hour south of Albuquerque.
