I enjoyed seeing dawn ad the beavers’ handiwork, but my favorite photos is the one from Beaver Point. It is stunningly powerful and serene.
The one from Beaver Point is my favorite as well. There is a sense of movement from the clouds.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Wow! Great views.
You are welcome.
All of these are great, Tim. I have to agree the Beaver Point shot is my favorite as well.
The view from Beaver Point is a classic landscape. Thanks, Bruce.
How wonderful, Timothy.
They did a great job ! The last 10 years beavers are returning to Belgium after the disapeared for a long time.
That’s good to hear. Thanks, Rudi.
Bliss… one more day of beauty!
Love the colours on the official dam pic!
It’s a damn nice dam with a colorful background for sure. Thanks, Dale.
Was für herrliche Himmelsbilder und der Biber, gibt es den tatsächlich bei dir?
We have lots of beavers. Thanks, einfachtilda.
I have never seen a beaver before.

He’s adorable and the music fits perfectly!
I thought you might like it. They look like little bears.
These skies are lovely xxxxx
Splendid post, Tim. Hugs on the wing.
The sky sees it all, doesn’t it! And we look up and try to grow wings.
But we know what happens if we fly to close to the sun. Thanks, Rebecca.
Indeed we do…alas.
So beautiful views. I like the way, you framed the 2nd photo.
Thanks, Heidi. I like that shot.
Do you have to remove the Beaver Dam… does it cause any troubles?
Beaver Point shot is awesome!
Normally the Conservancy District take out the beaver dams, but I think the fire marshal finally talked them into leaving the dams because the fire department needs the water high enough to use it to put out bosque fires. Thanks, Nancy.
I will come check it out soon. It’s good to see a new dam in place, and so conveniently located too.
That dam and your pics are soooo damn good Tim!!!
What a beautiful and dramatic sky!
A nicely done beaver dam.
Does the new water agreement between Colorado, NM and Texas ensure flowing water in the Rio Grande? Texas was prepared to sue NM for taking all the water, and sue Colorado for not having enough snow. The suit on snowfall, I kid you not.
Several years ago there was an agreement between NM, Texas and Mexico for NM to keep water flowing in the Rio Grande. The conservancy district had dire news for us irrigators in the spring that we would not have much irrigation water due to drought and the water deficit NM had with Texas. I think something might have changed besides getting slightly above average rainfall through the summer because after few irrigation opportunities in the spring, we got water every three weeks starting around mid-June and I got to ittigte the last week of October before they shut down the acequias for the winter. Last year, the last irrigation water we got was in the middle of August, because the conservancy had used up the water allotment for the season. Texans don’t quite get it.
Really like that second shot – all those lines had me traveling all over that image and eventually landed on the letters in the bottom left. Do they mean something?
I have no idea what the letters mean. Thanks, Brian.
