See forever sky

A lot of people ask why we moved to Taos and most who do are folks who have made the same mistake, I mean choice.  Other than bad judgment, I tell them, we couldn't find a house we wanted to buy in Santa Fe. 

Then I recite a list of the real reasons that include better weather than northern New England, a bugless summer that lasts more than three days, skiing on actual snow, an honest to god art scene and that I, that’s the operative word, had a hankering to get back west.  Peggy not so much.

But first and foremost it’s the endless vistas, the see forever sky. There’s chest filling exhilaration as you stare in an oxygen deprived reverie across the chaparral with distant mountains heaving upward.  It’s akin to freedom in some abstract way. 
It 's no mean task to pick a couple of images that exemplify the eyes wide open desert.  I hope that these photographs taken just east of Antonito last week capture the feeling just a little.

Forever sky is right. The first photograph is soft and layered with clouds, landscape, and light. The second begs the viewer to follow. So many artists and photographers, regardless of their home bases, say the same thing about New Mexico. There is something about the light and sky and you make the most of it.

Thanks Daryl. It is special that's for sure. The undiscovered backroads the lace the northern NM and southern Colorado offer up such vistas nearly everywhere you look.
