artistry in nature

I am awed by the beauty of these standing dead giants. Although past, they support much life, their limbs full of birds and insects who in turn owe some of their lives to the old cottonwoods. Although strong looking, the ground is littered with fallen giants and I walk carefully around them respecting their eventual fall-to-earth by the power of the wind.

skies over Albuquerque

Before I headed down to Albuquerque, I was worried about the prospect of living in the desert. It will never be my choice of places to live. I miss the mountains and the lakes. However, the skies are breathtaking. My sister’s house has a flat roof and I can climb out the window to take photos. Last night, the sky was totally spectacular. I got out on the roof just in time to catch the end of the show.
