Choosing a shot for this week's word a week photo challenge – distant -was relatively easy when I saw the shots i had taken last week of Arizona's painted desert.

I would have preferred to take them a little later in the day, when the light and shodows would have been more interesting, but we had an overnight stop near Window Rock in New Mexico and so many more miles to travel. The parched ground and landscape could happily backdrop a moon landing.

I felt another couple of shots from last week's trip deserved a show in this category- salt river canyon never disappoints and the distant layers of mountain and road cutting through fits the bill for me.

Last up is the Bridge over the Rio Grande in New Mexico, near Taos. I have old shots of this bridge with a more typical deep blue sky but have chosen to show the distant storm activity which was to hit later in the day.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

i'd love to hear from you...
