Stunning photos! In my area, the light tends to toward turning the snow lavender or blue.
The Sandias (watermelon in Spanish) often turn pink and red at sunset and so does the snow. They will take on a purplish hue at dusk. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
It was a beautiful Pink Paradise show, Tim! The last shot had me wondering how far afield you had gone to get it, but then saw it was the Sandia Peak Ski Area SkiCam.
The ski cam was handy. I was looking to see how much snow they got. It was not enough to record, but there was snow on the west face of the Sandias. I looked at the SkiCam to see what the snow looked like. Not much and they need a lot more to ski on. There are no plans to open the ski area this season unless they get a lot of snow. Thanks, Lavinia.
Oh my goodness you visit some of the most beautiful mountains
Pink Snow fallen upon Sandia – reads like the title of a soon released novel.
This area you photograph is hauntingly beautiful, I must travel there in the winter to lay my eyes upon these Pink snow caps. With a word from up above to gaze into these illustratious clouded skies.
Wow! That last one is a stunner! Would you believe we’ve not seen a single snowflake, yet? (Not that I’m complaining.) Mind you, they are calling for some come Wednesday. And it’s been so damn cold!
You went from hot to cold in a flash it sounds like. It’s pretty cold down here, too. Thanks, Dale.
Gave me whiplash it was so fast!
Yes, it is cold. Need to start my car before I leave in the morning. What is up with that?
It’s -8.3ºC right now. Pretty chilly out here.
It’s even colder where YOU are!! It’s -2ºC (feels like -5ºC) here!
It dropped to -8.8ºC when I left for work.
No thank you.
Oh cool! Do you ski?
I tried downhill skiing once when I was a teenager. I got kicked off the Bunny Slope for being too wild. I was surprised I survived the big slopes. I went down fast and furious and ran over anyone who got in my way. I decided I was much too dangerous for downhill skiing. I did cross country skiing for a few years that we had lots of snow. But we haven’t had much snow in years, and I won’t travel to ski. Thanks, JYP.
Didn’t see pink snow when we skied there many years ago. Nice mix of color and sky.
You missed out. Thanks, Brad.
Those cameras set around are really neat, Everything form beaches to mountains to osprey and other bird nests. Like your photos Tim.
Thanks, Maj & Sher. Saves me the cost of a Tram ride to use the SkiCam. It’s really long drive around the mountain to drive to the crest, then a mile hike to the ski area.
Gorgeous! Love the title too!
At last some winterly images… we almost forgot that winter still excists 🙂
I like the panorama from the Sandia Peak Ski Area.
I keep going back to your ski picture. It is so beautiful.
Thanks, Shey. It’s the SkiCam’s photo. All I can take credit for is doing the screen shot.
I know but it is lovely and your own pics ae lovely too ALWAYS.
Bliss… especially that sunset which resembles a master Japanese print!
Schon Winter bei euch? Sogar rosa Schnee, ein Hingucker!
It’s cold here. -8.3ºC this morning. Thank, einfachtilda.
wow you have snow already…. nice captures…
The mountains have snow. Thanks, China Dream.
Tim, what can I add after reading all your followers comments. I’d have the same comments. Gorgeous pink sky, sunset, and snow. I’ll add you have the sharpest photographer’s eye to get perfect photos. 📚🎶 Christine
Thanks, Christine. I appreciate that.
That ski shot is magical, makes me want to go there. So hard to capture the pink like that. great job. thanks for sharing
Beautiful photos Timothy!
Love it all!
Love the Pink Snow reflection…. 🙂
Pink snow? Cool!
This is amazing pretty, Tim.
That’ll be the day I see pink snow in Toronto!
There’s got to be a Gowntoons use for pink snow?
I would definitely agree. Thanks, Resa.
Tim – you have captured a scene so beautiful it is almost surreal.
True. Thanks, Rebecca.
wow all captured in one day Tim… amazing!!
All in a days view. Thanks, Cindy.
Lucky you and us.. you’re welcome Tim! 💗
Wow the pink looks beautiful!
Wonderful skies, Tim. In fact, they are more than just wonderful.
Thanks, Eunice. We get goo skies out here.
You are welcome.
Makes me want to grab my snowboard and head down there! We have about 2 or so inches on the ground now – just enough to be dangerous for the new drivers in the area.
No snow boarding in the Sandias, but there is points north. Thanks, Brian.
Beautiful pink skies.
I just got back home fro Bend, Oregon. It’s so beautiful there, and cold though too. Looks very similar.
I hope you had a good bender in Bend. Thanks, Jeff.
Thanks, Tim. I was conferencing. It was a good time. Most welcome, Tim.
An in-person conference. Cool!
Absolutely loving that pink!
Beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing. How I wish I can see snow.
Beautiful pics -especially love the last one
