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!
