Sunset on the Sandias and Sandhill Cranes coming in for landing. Most of the group of cranes decided not to land and flew further south, or made another round before landing.

  1. These images showcase what is so beautiful about winter here, even on a cold and very windy day! 🙂

    • Thanks, Susan. It is cold, but the wind cleaned the air up a little. I was up in Santa Fe earlier today and it was really cold up there.

  2. The Sandias, the river and cranes are among my favorite photos you post. I have so many favorites on your blog it is hard to choose though! Beautiful photography, Tim.

    • Thanks, Lavinia. I’m happy you like the Sandias, river and cranes since they are such an big part of our lives.

    • Hi Resa. The Sandias are the mountains. Sandía is watermelon in Spanish. Because of its shape and that it turns pink at sunset the mountains were named Sandias. The piece of land on the river is a sandbar, which is an island.

  3. I can’t get over how beautiful these photos are! The colors are breathtaking. My favorite has to be that last one. The clouds drifting lazily over the landscape – amazing! Looks like you could reach out and grab them. Incredible job as always, Tim. You’re a spectacular photographer!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours! I hope it’s a day filled with joy and a lifetime of memories. (Sorry for being so out of touch! I despise getting behind!)

    • The Cranes hang around until the beginning of March, if you want to bring your camera out. Thanks, Teri.
