I spent an afternoon and then a very early morning in the Chama river canyon near Ghost Ranch, trying to get there before the cottonwoods started to lose their leaves. I was a bit late, but there was a glorious hunter’s moon, and a beautiful sunset and sunrise.
There were clouds covering the horizon when the moon rose, so I had a little time to drive up to the little town of Los Ojos to shoot before sleeping in the canyon and getting up early to catch the dawn, which was pretty amazing. Finally, there is a classic overlook on the river as one drives up the hill past Abiquiu, and i spent a little time wandering around there.
This was the last of the urgent fall photo journeys, so now I have a bunch of paintings to finish and some studio improvements….
