A snowy day in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument always seems to give me itchy feet. That’s English slang for the “desire to travel”. Soon I will be traveling to the sunny beaches of Baja Mexico but that’s another story, for now I simply drop into the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument during one of our moisture laden Northern New Mexico snow storms.
I was a little surprised at the effect that the weather, snow and fog, had on my images of the day. I purposely chose to shoot with a “smallish” aperture in an attempt to increase the depth of field, and in capturing these images the histogram shifted a little to the left, that is to say, slightly on the dark side. With the falling snow, the dense fog and the soft subtle light, the images took on a character their own.
Here’s the results.
