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.

Sell Art OnlineCerro 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 American’s of the area used this flint for arrowheads, knives, scrapers and spear points. Artist Georgia O’Keefe lived in nearby Abiquiu and created stunning paintings of this well-known butte.

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.

(click on image below to view on my website)

Bald Eagle of The Rio Grande, New Mexico.One of my pleasurable winter past times is pursuing the the Bald Eagles of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, New Mexico. In New Mexico, migrating Bald Eagles can be found near rivers and lakes, where occasional tall trees provide look-out perches and night roosts. Along the Rio Grande they can easily be seen perched along the river vigilantly watching the water’s surface for their next meal. Bald Eagles feed primarily on fish, such as carp and suckers, and occasionally waterfowl.

Winter fisherman on the Rio Grande, New Mexico.

Winter fishing in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument is just as rewarding as summer fishing with the added luxury of having the place to yourself. The Rio Grande of Northern New Mexico slices the volcanic Taos Plateau and offers a unique outdoor experience to all who venture in. Evidence of ancient use is found throughout the area in the form of petroglyphs, prehistoric dwelling sites, and many other types of archaeological sites.

Bighorn Sheep Headshots

These headshots were taken as I hiked the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument of New Mexico in search of what Mother Nature provides.

New Mexico bighorn sheep historically speaking have never been widespread in the Northern part of the Land of Enchantment. There’s documented evidence of New Mexico bighorn sheep in White Rock Canyon, the Manzano Mountains and the Pecos and Wheeler Peak Wilderness areas. By the early 20th century, the bighorn had been essentially wiped out due to hunting and diseases brought in state by domestic livestock.

In 2006, 25 sheep were captured in the Pecos Wilderness and transported to public land on the West Rim of the Rio Grande Gorge, thus joining 23 bighorn sheep already in place across the Rio Grande on Taos Pueblo Tribal Lands. According to Pam Herrera-Olivas, in 2007, a wildlife biologist for the BLM’s Taos Field Office, “the new herd produced 12 lambs this spring, and they’re in excellent health.”

BMW 100 S ~ Image of the Week

This image was taken while I attended Sipapu, New Mexico’s, Bavarian Mountain Motorcycle Rally in 2016.
The BMW R100S is at its best on long, fast hauls, where it can get into its long-legged stride and where the handling is a delight. This motorcycle has particularly good handling on mountain roads.

Deer Creek has cut a short, deep canyon within the Grand Canyon National Park more specifically know as the Deer Creek Narrows. I approached this unique natural wonder by raft via the Colorado River. Starting at Lee’s Ferry, traveling 137 river miles over 14 days, I camped on the rivers edge across from Deer Creek Falls. A trail just downstream of the falls heads up to the narrows through the Tapeats Sandstone. The waterfall in the upper portion of the photograph is the first of several as the water enters the narrows section and joins the Colorado River below.
