    Every year I spend some time at this beautiful lake in New Mexico. Getting up in the mornings watching the sun rise beyond the mountains and setting at night over the lake , deep blue skies or cloudy skies, long waited for rain or clouds of dust blowing over the lake, or like once dence smoke from the forest fire at Alamo , forever changing and fascinating. And great swimming.

    Lake Abiquiu

    A powerful and vibrant land, sky and waterscape. The focal point made me smile - I have seen this so many times in nature. It gave me a great feeling.
