New Mexico Skies
There are plenty of good reasons why artists, writers, photographers and other creative types gravitate to the American Southwest in general, and to New Mexico in particular.
One of these reasons has to be the quality of light that seems unique to the region.
When cloud-free, the skies tend to be a faultless cerulean blue.
When dappled with clouds, the midday glare seems magically moderated.
When thunderheads appear, they lend a whole new dimension — that of the vertical — to the landscape.
And as daylight fades, the sky seems to take on a character all its own, entirely separate from the broken terrain below.
It’s time for another New Mexico roadtrip!
