April springtime in northern New Mexico photographs

April 12, 2014

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:

El Salto, New Mexico

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,

And birds, I love me some birds.  This little guy was inspired by a Field Sparrow that came to our feeders one day.  And only one day, I haven’t seen it since.  Must have been migrating through.

If you ever want to buy any of my art I will pay shipping to your place.  Each picture ought to take you to the link to buy it and then I will reimburse your shipping costs, easy-peasy.

Have a beautiful and lovely day,

CheyAnne

Light, snow, crisp and cold

sweet, feathers, light and abundance

White-Breasted Nuthatch stretched out

So I thanked him/her for posing so nicely for me…..

and off she/he went

and off she/he went

as wings can lift them away into the air

New Mexico Raven/Crow on Top of the World

New Mexico Raven/Crow on Top of the World

watching, seeing

and as the light was fading underneath the shadows of the pines

and as the light was fading underneath the shadows of the pines

in the cold, cold brisk November air of shadows and light

I found more sun-struck icicles shining for us all

I found more sun-struck icicles shining for us all

sunlight shines and sparkles , starlight diamonds glowing

as the crow slipped away

as the crow slipped away from the snow-slide

They seem to know these things…..

Hope all is well and happy and peaceful tonight. Don’t forget to look up to the sky all through the night as Venus is shining Super Bright in the south-west sky.

peace n abundance,

CheyAnne
