And finally

This is the image that launched the ever lovely Sketches of Winter series more than fifteen years ago. I was photographing La Morada de Nuestra SeƱora de Guadalupe in Taos when I looked down to see these hardy numbers reach for the sky.

The blotches and darts of spitting snow adorn the buttresses of San Francisco de Asis in Ranchos de Taos. 

Tipi, Ranchos de Taos

It turns out I could have ridden the white horse of winter for another month. Man, I have a lot of snow pics. So, like last week, here are six more contenders for my as yet untitled article for Shadow and Light in January. And like last week, the prose has dwindled to a precious few words.

Inky Shadows, Valles Caldera

Into the Clouds, Los Cordobas

Adobe at Ranchos Plaza

I trust you had an extraordinary Christmas and that 2024 brings you health, happiness and unexpected delights.

Happy New Year, Steve! Thank you for the last of your lovely selection of Sketches of Winter today. My favorites are the last three - the inky shadows in Valles Caldera, Into the Clouds,Los Cordovas (which took me down a rabbit hole as far as spelling, meaning, and pluralism are concerned), and adobe at Ranchos Plaza are my favorites of the group. Your piece in Shadow and Light Magazine will be magnificent, no doubt. And now we move onward into a bright new year, complete with 31 seconds more daylight!
