April springtime in northern New Mexico photographs

Starting my day driving  up to the ski valley, I caught this Red-breasted Robin high in the red willows behind a snow covered green willow tree.  What a delight

was taking a co-worker home I headed up into El Salto in a typical springtime day of snow showers interspersed with sunshine:

all the sap is rising around here and it’s turning everything rich red and saturated greens pushing through the gold colors left over from autumn and winter:

The whole hillside is bleating with sheep calls (which unfortunately I was too far away from) and the birdcall was as plentiful as the snow flurries:

the sun shining and glistening off of all the rich colors every where I looked:

I still get excited every single time I spot a horse

Hope you liked my photography story of El Salto, New Mexico on a snowy day in April.

As always if you see anything you can’t live without on your own walls,  just let me know and I can invoice you easy-peasy.

peace n abundance,

  2. Beth Walsh's Photoblog Says:

    I love the last three images…almost abstract landscapes…love the effect of the rain.

    Sreejith,
    They/we call New Mexico the ‘Land of Enchantment’ and it truly is during this kind of weather. I just love it. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such kind words.

  4. newmexicomtngirl Says:

    Thanks Beth, I do too. These are edited using a bit of brightness and high contrast. I also did this series in low contrast and they are softer and more of the tree limbs show. My honey kept liking the high contrast so those are the ones I went with. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know which ones you like and why. It’s always good to hear

    Those reds and golds are so vibrant. On the prairies, the reds and golds are autumn colors. That’s when the grasses really shine. And here, it’s a hundred different shades of green. But it’s the change that’s so delightful. You’ve captured yours beautifully.

  6. newmexicomtngirl Says:

    yep it’s the change that is so delightful Linda. So happy spring is finally here.

  7. Jim O'Donnell Says:

    Ahhhh…the acequias are running again and its spring. Thank God! But you captured it just right Cheyenne. Its spring time but winter finally arrived. Snow today!

  8. newmexicomtngirl Says:

    Right? We waited all of Dec and Jan to get all this snow. At least it will melt quickly and right to the roots of all things dry and parched. Thanks for the visit Jim, I always love hearing from you.

I would love to hear from you, thanks. I also really enjoy knowing how you came across my little piece of this world wide web we live in...
