Junco on Grass

 

A junco fluttered and swayed trying to balance on a rather flimsy stalk of grass, giving it something of an angelic appearance. I finally put together a panorama of the Sandias after the storm on Monday. I like how the layers build up to the clouds, which mimic the mountains, becoming extensions of the peaks.  The last photo is the sunset from the top of our road tonight. As you can see, we still have a lot of snow after two days of full sun. I’m not sure the temperature has made it above freezing this week in our micro-climate. We’ve had two nights below zero and I expect the temperature will fall below zero again tonight.

  1. I was looking at google maps what places I have been, close to you. In 1992 or so I spend my birthday in Denver ( they offered me mountain oysters as a treat 😉 and I spend a few days in Phoenix. I also made a horse ride in phoenix, fine memories popping back now 🙂
