New Mexico Morning
October 30, 2011
This was shot from a high plateau over the Rio Grande Gorge near Taos, New Mexico. It was shot early one morning before we went for the hot air balloon ride. Take a look at it in the larger sizes, and you'll notice a little blonde-haired boy that is exploring in the scrub brush to the right of the photo. He is hard to see.
I loved the way the sun's rays seemed to be flooding from under the cloud, pouring down over the mountain in the distance. There's another highly processed version of this same shot (and the boy is easier to see in that version) located here:
I had a hard time deciding which one I liked best and which one to post for the POTD. Which one is your favorite?
Good news: I'm home today. Bad news: I'm leaving again tomorrow. Better news: No 'work' travel plans for the rest of the year. Please keep your fingers crossed that it works out that way.
Have a glorious Sunday my friends!
