Wishful thinking for Downtown Albuquerque.
No moon this morning. It was hiding behind the clouds at dawn.
I attended a meeting about a conservation project in north Corrales where runoff and treated wastewater from Rio Rancho dumps into the Rio Grande. The Nature Conservancy is working with various agencies to use the runoff and wastewater to retore the area into a wetland. Therefore, I did not get out to say hi to the owls and cranes tonight.

Those are lovely lavender and pink clouds! Good you are involved in the conservation project. A wetland would be good for the beavers and kin.
Thanks, Lavinia. The only mention of beavers is how to protect the trees they want to plant from being cut down by beavers.
That last image is spectacular, Timothy.
I envy your skies available for you to record for us all, Tim. TTFNski
I hope you had a succesful meeting.
It was a good meeting. Thanks, picpholio.
Glad to hear you are getting out there and advocating for a good cause, Tim!
Very interesting dumpster and great skies.
Wishful thinking indeed…
Sigh, that painter…
Graffiti tagging has reached epic proportions on just about everything but USPS boxes. But for every clever tag, there’s nothing to compare with the handiwork of those gorgeous Albuquerque skies!
Tagging is all over the place. At least we have our skies and critters. Thanks, Mary Jo.
You are always at the right place and the right time Tim…..to capture such lovely skies…….🙏🏼🤩🙏🏼🤩🙏🏼🤩🤩🤩🙏🏼
Thanks, Ruelha. They skies are fairly predictable out here.
Hey Tim is this what is being discussed at that meeting?
That’s the one. Thanks, Ron.
It’s “redemption” not “redeption.” The Big J would be wondering, “What in the hell is redeption???” 🙂
For defacing USPS boxes, the penalty is five years, $50,000. If you deface enough, it might get you consecutive sentences at Medium FCC in Florence, CO.
Are they sure they would want to use treated wastewater into the Rio Grande to create a wetlands? Wetlands, by definition, are considered “pristine” under the Clean Water Act.
I can’t vouch for the spelling. It is downtown Albuquerque. Clean Water Act? We don’t need no stinking clean water act in New Mexico. The state DOH has totally botched up the vaccine rollout.
Beauty shots! Sounds like a very important meeting.
There’s contraversy. Thanks, Resa.
I’m sure the Owls and Cranes missed the paparazzi but such a worthy cause. Great pics Tim.
Loved the title “Divine Dumpster” for this curious sight, Tim. And the two magnificent photos of the sky, that big sky you have in NM, are wonderful. My favorite is the third one with the Rio Grande and all the beauty above it.
Thanks, Jet. We get plenty of curiosities downtown. Our skies are fabulous.
Sounds like you are busy Tim … I agree with Dale, that last shot is spectacular!
Thanks, Julie. Life keeps moving along.
