Looking back through my photos posted on my Blog in the past

December 29, 2014

I found these gems I forgot all about:

I just loved the colors of this early April Spring day here in El Salto of northern New Mexico.  I was taking a coworker home up a road I really never see and on this day the weather was magical.  Full of snow and spitting sleet.  Spring colors were popping everywhere and acequia’s were starting to run full of snow melt.

Across the road the misty air was thick with moisture.

I still get excited every single time I spot a horse

On another spring time day, but this one down in Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico, my honey was tiling the farmers new house and I was sneaking up, or rather trying to sneak up on the new spring lambs down by the riverside.  Aren’t they just so fun and frisky?

Spring is just my favorite season of all and now that winter has finally arrived I’ve started dreaming of spring.

Surreal kind of selling my art this morning….

September 17, 2014

My honey is laying tile again and he hurts, so when he gets home he pretty much crashes after dinner.  Last night was no different only earlier.

so at 2am he gets up, and soon after

“Are you awake?” very lightly I hear through the dark..

After a pause,

had to think if I was or not,

“yes” I whisper.

 

“You sold

‘t w o’

pieces.

Mailbox money honey,

while you are sleeping ! !  !” he exclaimed.

And I’ve been dazy ever-sense .  Nice way to wake up for sure…..

I wrote her later:

“Sharon,
Thank you, Thank you so Very much.
I adore these pieces and so glad you do too. My honey woke me up in the middle of the morning about two am and all day I felt a dreamy sort of feeling. Don’t know if that makes any sense to you, but anyway.
As soon as I pick up these gilcees I will get them out and send you an email with a tracking number.
peace n abundance,
CheyAnne

when Sharon wrote back

“It certainly does make sense to me. New Mexico is so incredibly beautiful. It is my home state. These photographs capture the light and the Spirit of New Mexico.”

 

Oh what a compliment, thank you.  I first saw, really saw New Mexico when I was in my twenties on a road trip away from my young family for the first time.  Amazing light and rolling hills and glorious mountains, not to mention the weather.

Thanks so much for more inspiration to capture and post more New Mexico landscapes.

peace”

 

 

What a blessing people bring back when they purchase, with their hard-earned cash, a piece and two of mine.

 

 

feeling very blessed and abundant,

CheyAnne

 

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:

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:

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,

CheyAnne

Sun Setting from 8000 ft, northern New Mexico

March 30, 2014

I’ve been feeling very out of it these days, and I read somewhere on the net to watch the sunset and sunrise to get back in touch with feelings.  To trust that the sun will set and rise in the morning.

So I went out and watched the sun set from 7910 ft. elevation on this Earth
