New Mexico Skies

As I keep saying, the sky here is vast and the light unlike anything I've seen anywhere else.

Every evening, for just a few moments, the light bands the mountains, making a mosaic of the landscape, it's magical.

Tonight, I looked out and caught this landscape where a small mountain range sits off to the east. In this photo, you can see the incredible sandy colored ridge in the middle of the photo.

And just to show you how unusual it is here, facing west, just thirty seconds later, this is the same sky. One could get dizzy just looking at the skies!

I love New Mexico.
