In Santa Fe... Who Rules?

If you ever asked me who ruled Santa Fe, I would answer "it's the clouds, of course". We have no tall buildings for Superman to fly down from and land on the Plaza or King Kong to grab and star in another movie made in New Mexico. Frankly, I think Santa Fe is blessed by clouds simply because our cityscape is still horizontal in nature after 400 years of development. What everyone sees everyday is a new cast of character clouds. In winter, they gently drop snow. In spring, they bring wind and move ever so quickly. By summer, they bring rain with double rainbows. In the fall, they spotlight our trees change of colors. And every day they make my imagination smile.

This cloudscape left me breathless one late afternoon on the North side as I was driving home from an open house. I pulled over and watched the show. Here is a scene from one of my favorite acts. Enjoy!

Roseanne, I think you must come an visit and experience the magic of being here. Thank you for your kind words on my images. Years ago, I did show in galleries prior to my commercial work creating advertising art. Today, I'm showing on ActiveRain. Stay tuned!

Emily - Beautiful photo, but they become three dimensional through your description. Loved it! I am a cloud fan too. Don't get me wrong, I love my blue skys, but a blue sky with clouds is so much better.

Emily, that is a fantastic photo, thank you for sharing it. I am a cloud watcher myself, and I loved the fact you pulled over to look at the sky. We all need to do that in our lives more often.

Emily.. This is such a gorgeous picture.  It would be good enough for a postcard.  You have a very good eye for these.  I think if real estate slows down for you, you've found your second calling.

Judy, like you I love the characters the clouds create on those blue skies.

Andrea, I confess, I pull over alot since the camera is often on the passenger seat. If you were following me, it would drive you crazy...

Charles, thank you for the generous compliment. I know you have great clouds in Charlottesville as I lived in DC for many years.

Anita, thank you. One of the gifts of digital cameras/phones/ipads is you can instantly learn from the results. It is really all about looking more everyday.

Valerie, I confess, I spent 25 years behind the camera when film ruled. Photoshop changed the demand for my vision and I relocated to Santa Fe and here I am. Thank you for your kind words.

Pam, thank you for your kind words. Horses like cloudscapes also give my imagination a place to roam. You are fortunate to have them in your life everyday.
