Under A Big Sky

Among my many series, the eclectic range of images that inhabit named categories, is Under A Big Sky, the category that is self-explanatory and which features the sky as the dominant subject that dwarfs what lies beneath.

Earlier this year President Obama signed into law a bill that named the Rio Grande Del Norte as the nation's newest national monument. The bill recognizes and protects a large swath of north central New Mexico that includes the canyon called the Rio Grande Gorge but also vast scrublands that begin just north of US Highway 64 and extend all the way to the Colorado border.  The flat chaparral is the Taos Plateau. It's little traveled and even less appreciated so here are images that celebrate the plateau's stark beauty.
That sky is why we're in Taos, folks.

That is why we live in Taos, indeed. The sky cannot be beat. I particularly love the third image, which, courtesy of the fence and wooden ramp, literally funnels the viewer into the sky. Thanks, Steve!
