Photographing winter in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument brings with it many challenges, not only trying to stay warm but keeping the lens clear and the camera dry.
The drive in, down and out of the Carson National Forest into the monument proved to be a challenge unto itself. I didn’t get first tracks.
Snow covered Autumn leaves of the Cottonwood Trees provided a nice abstract image.Then the next squall of snowy winter weather arrived bringing a fierce wind blowing the flakes horizontally. A lone tree endures the winter cold while enjoying the moisture. The howling wind plastered the snow flakes to everything in it’s path. Here the thistle took on a brand new look.
