new mexico—part 2

We spent one of our days in New Mexico just driving, taking the road from Santa Fe to Abiquiu—home to Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch—from Abiquiu up through Carson National Forest, across the Rio Grande, on to Taos, and then back to Santa Fe. It took the entire day, and while I'm not a huge fan of long drives, this was worth it. At every point, the scenery was beautiful. These photos are from that drive. My favorite, as always, is the first. The scenery is nice, but what I like here is the composition, and the sense that the subject—my wife—is walking into the distance, but not quite the unknown. It works.
