Mainstreet of Santa Rosa, New Mexico

Last week I was traveling around New Mexico, photographing different towns but it was a busy trip trying to get from one destination to the next while passing up some golden ops. So here’s one of the few shots that I liked. It was frustrating because I was trying to take so many pictures in as little time as possible. When I head back over to NM this week, I’m just going to dedicate a day to a certain place and focus more on the quality of the photos instead of how many I can take. Santa Rosa is along I-40 and it has a nice display of rotting buildings. There’s also countless abandoned rotting stucco adobes all over the New Mexican landscape. Hopefully this new job of mine will allow me to witness a lot more of this beautiful state since I am from Utah.

Cloudscape from July 2011

This is a shot taken in the summer of July 2011 out in the Great Basin Desert about 30 miles west of Milford on the way to Great Basin National Park in Nevada. I’ve got another shot of a cloudburst that I’ll post a bit later. Life’s short… Enjoy the beauty.
