I have been to Santa Fé in New Mexico several times but this year I took in Abiquiú which lies about 50 miles north. I hope these few photographs show the wonderful combination of adobe buildings and magnificent blue skies. I always think New Mexican skies look photoshopped but few photographers would pull the gradient slider so blue, so it has to be real!
The first church featured is allegedly the one in some Georgia O'Keeffe painting. This might be quite untrue, but that's what a gallery owner said- there is always someone in the blogosphere to put you right! I thought it was more than a little amusing that it said 'welcome'on a gate, while on the same notice asked you not to go beyond the gate to take photographs- go figure!
this panorama of Abiquiú lake (below) a bit of an experiment on a new panasonic point and shoot.
I have been on a steep learning curve moving my photo storage and editing from aperture to lightroom. (Thank you Apple for announcing you are stopping support of aperture and iPhoto!!) I think I am now in a position to blog from lightroom, so l hope to flood my blog with some of the wonderful places I have visited in the past couple of months.
Have a great day!
