Rio Grande Gorge Bridge From Below – Featured

Featured in three groups on Fine Art America.

A view from down below looking up at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge 650 feet above the Rio Grande in Northern New Mexico. The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge of New Mexico, the second highest bridge on the U.S. Highway System, is a three-span steel continuous-deck-truss structure with a concrete-filled steel-grid deck. It was called the “bridge to nowhere” while it was being built because the funding did not exist to continue the road on the other side. In 1966 the American Institute of Steel Construction awarded the bridge “Most Beautiful Steel Bridge” in the “Long Span” category.

Cerro Pedernal – Featured Image

Cerro Pedernal, is this weeks featured image on Fine Art America in the “New Mexico Land of Enchantment” and “All Natural Beauty in this World” groups.

Cerro Pedernal is located in the northern Jemez Mountains due west of my home in Ojo Caliente and the best part is I view it everyday from my veranda. The name Pedernal means flint in Spanish and this butte in northern New Mexico is a great source for the same. Native Americans of the area used this flint for arrowheads, knives, scrapers and spear points. Artist Georgia OKeefe lived in nearby Abiquiu and created stunning paintings of this well-known butte.

Fire Black and White Fine Art Image

Fire Black and White Featured Image on Fine Art America in the “Images That Excite You” group.

Fire, it seems so simple but if you google it it quickly becomes somewhat complicated. Oxidation, exothermic and combustion are but three words used to describe the process. Fire has been used by humans in rituals, in agriculture, for cooking, generating heat and light, for signaling, propulsion purposes, smelting, forging, incineration of waste, cremation, and as a weapon or mode of destruction.
This image was taken as I sat staring into the abyss of flames, embers, coals and endless darkness between.

Terraced Slope, Rio Marañon, Peru

This terraced landscape image was taken downstream of the Celendin bridge on the Rio Marañon of Peru, approximately kilometer 370. In the course of rafting 400 miles and 30 days, the Rio Marañon passes through biomes ranging from barren desert to lush rain forest.
There were many discussions within our group as to as to what created the wavy, terraced effect as seen in this image. We can to no conclusion.

The San Pedro cactus, Echinopsis pachanoi, seen in this image grow up to 40 feet. It is one of the four most sacred plants of Peru. San Pedro has hallucinogenic properties and is often compared to the more popular cactus known as Peyote; both are members of the mescaline family.

Peruvian Burro Curls

Peruvian Burro Curls Image of the Week

This image was taken as we packed our Peruvian burro for our hike in the Andes with the final destination being Lagoona 69. Laguna 69 is one of the most popular short treks in Peru’s Huascarán National Park. Burros were introduced into the Llama’s domain from Spain in the early 1500’s. Originally the burro was described as small, emaciated and worn out by the demands that the Andes put upon it. Yet it survived. Today the burro can be seen doing it’s work, carrying articles of trade, handicrafts and passengers, and pulling crude plows in the high-terraced fields on Peru.

Eminence Camp Umbrella at Night

This night image was taken on my 21 day rafting journey through the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River at Eminence Camp, mile 45. With the rafts tied off securely for the night, I sat and watched moonlight illuminate the water’s surface. The Colorado River in the Grand Canyon boost more than 100 rapids, providing some of the wildest whitewater in North America with two of the best being Crystal and Lava Falls. Our non-commercial, self-guided river adventure was outfitted by Ceiba Adventures out of Flagstaff, Arizona.

Snow Raven – Featured

“Superb details, Britt, which isn’t easy with this bird! Your beautiful image has been featured by Wild Birds Of The World.”

(click on image below to visit my website)

Photography PrintsWhile I hiked the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico, I happened upon this Common Raven searching the snow covered ground for bits of sustenance. Ravens are members of the Corvus family which includes crows. Ravens are among the smartest of all birds, gaining a reputation for solving complicated problems invented by creative scientists. They cruise along roads looking for roadkill. Crows don’t typically do this, so if you see a bird flying down the middle of a road, it’s probably a raven.
