      • Ah yes, Gabriela. Irrigation. I’m doing the same thing the Spanish who settled in New Mexico over 400 years ago had been doing over hundreds of years in this area. The acequias, majordomos, and the life and culture of irrigating communities are very strange for people who don’t grow up with it. Do you know the opening line in Steely Dan’s song “Do It Again”: “In the morning you go gunning for the man who stole your water…”? That’s not far off when it comes to dealing with the people who buy land out here and don’t understand the irrigation system, the politics and ramifications of not bothering to learn about how it all works, and being ignorant of the fact that there are actually rules one has to follow when it comes to irrigating. Some of my neighbors and I have had some good fights with the idiots who move out here and don’t bother to learn about the rules and etiquette of irrigating. It’s still the wild west out in these parts and their Californication entitlements are worthless out here.

What’s wrong with learning? And what’s wrong with people who pretend they know when actually they don’t. I feel your frustration. I understand you.

        Enjoy the rest of your day Timothy and hugs to everyone.

  1. Your images look surreal, Tim, as though from another planet. Just gorgeous!! I see you have the chemtrails too. Every time I see them, it clouds up and we get rain. That too soon NO MORE! xo

  2. A beautiful series, Tim. The Sandias, river and sky and moon are all favorite subjects of mine. I love colors!

    It’s a wild sky day here, of the grey type.
