Near the Monastery on the Chama in NM

It's cold, dark and rainy in NC tonight, as I write this, but when I look at these photos taken in Oct 09 I can still feel the warm sun, smell the fertile air, and wonder at the play of light we experienced during this late afternoon. The High Desert Painters were painting along the Chama river in northern New Mexico when I took these photos. You can see the long shadows as the sun wanes in early evening. The perfect hour to be painting outdoors -- the Golden Hour.
