Fire and Ice

A rare thing occurred here at home last week…. I woke up to a bit of snow on the ground. I now live south of Albuquerque, almost to the Isleta Pueblo, and close to the bosque (Rio Grande river). We simply just do not get much snow, if any, here. Plenty in the mountains and high desert, but not down in the valley where I live.

Therefore when I awoke and saw the white, out came the camera to capture some photos of fire and ice before the sun got too high and melted it all.

  1. Awesome photos! I was very surprised when I got stuck in Albuquerque by a big snowstorm in January of 1986. This was during a road trip for my job set to end in Vegas. If I were the superstitious type, I’d take that snowstorm, and later when the grand canyon was too socked in to even see, as bad omens, because the Challenger disaster happened right before we got to Vegas.

  2. I’m liking the lightplay with ice and branches.

    For me, it’s the black and white of the branch and berry’s somewhat silhouetted by the sun … good, good schtuff! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
