New Mexico Adventure

Ok!  Its been awhile but I have been busy!   Latest adventure was to New Mexico.  Spent 9 days with 5 photographers & all we did was shoot!   Got very little sleep but it was worth it.  We rented a very nice house in Placitas (great hosts) and forayed out from there all days but one when we camped overnight in Chaco Canyon.   Jim Sykes, our friend & guide (he's been going to NM for 20 years) took us to so many places that it is hard to remember them all EXCEPT we took loads of images!    We had mountain day, church day, shopping day and a desert day among others!  We ate some awesome fiery food!  We saw hummingbirds, orioles & deer in the backyard.  We put over 1000 miles on that darn (killed my back) mini-van we rented.  It had so much dirt & dust on it that it was another color when we returned it.  The only problem we had was the wildfires that were flaring up all over AZ & NM.  We were unable to go to 2-3 places Jim wanted to go because of them.  There were also a lot of restrictions -- had to use a camp stove in Chaco Canyon as there could be no fires.  All in all we all had a very good time and got some great images.  Here are a few.  Check out my website to see even more.  Enjoy!

That's all for now.
