reconnect with nature

The day was ending and I was restless so I headed out to the bosque to watch the light change.
I parked the car and walked in to the trees.
And there it was, the golden hour and the mountain to the east.

reconnect with nature




Snow in the desert! Now that's something to celebrate!

Linking up with Chrisy at living a good north coast life and reconnecting with nature, one, ok, three photographs at a time.

from jemez creek to heaven








An ice-cold creek. A wild, wet wind. The bosque is thick with cottonwood, juniper, and the scent of snow. It's a  glorious mid-winter day in the high country, the kind of day that makes my soul sing.

The clouds gather, the air fills with rain, then sleet. I turn my face skyward, welcoming the weather, welcoming the wind, the winter, the season.

My heart, light as a feather, drifts among the apache plume. The sun breaks through the clouds. It was at that moment I knew I was right where I needed to be.

magic in the hills









Silent.
Sunlit.
Early morning in the desert.
Time to wander, to gather.
Time to see the beauty of Nature, all around me.

pet hair management




Is it possible?
How does it magically reappear on the freshly shampooed carpet?
Does this mysterious cluster of dog hair hold the secret to the universe?
Do I have anything better to contemplate these days?
