“Amber at Peek-a-boo” moves us north out of Northern Arizona and into Southern Utah. The Colorado Plateau is filled with many exciting and beautiful things and often hidden from sight are some of nature’s most beautiful creations–the sensuous curves of the slot canyons. These canyons are not easy to find, and most lie in remote areas. Sometimes you could be within a few feet of a gorgeous canyon and not know it is there, as they hide below a cleft in the surface crust.
With the image “Taos Waterfall” we return to rural New Mexico and the little town of Dixon, population 1,485. It lies off Route 68 and it is time to turn off the road and spend a little time there. The first thing you will see is a new winery-Vivac Winery. It is time to stop and do some local wine tasting. Treat yourself to a visual feast as well. Liliana Zavala Padberg has a mannequin portfolio that is stunning–one of them makes me happy every day by hanging in my home!
But there is more, as you can see from this image. In the Springtime, the small streams in the narrow canyons behind the town, gush with water, bringing new life to the desert. The cottonwoods and boulders sing with the song of nature in an unforgetable chorus and the warm sun smiles its approval. This image was taken there and celebrates the power and beauty of water. The water flow is turned to a white vail by the use of a long exposure time.
Don’t rush off, as there is much to see in the canyons of New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona. Our tour has just begun.
