Really nice series n1w!
Yes, the desert really is this red down there. We've had a pretty damp winter and spring, and it makes for some especially nice colors as a background for the new vegetation.
Thank you, Margot. I was kind of happy that I took that wrong turn, and got to see a bit of this area.
These are neat. And no wonder you got lost the roads head one way and for no reason turn and go back the way you came from or somewhere else so you think you're headed in the right direction but you aren't.
Hello, Guy. Thanks! You know, I think you've just found the source of many of my problems. I always seem to be headed in the wrong direction. I'll have look into that...
I'm glad you like it, Tery. It's someplace I'm determined to revisit.
a place I loved at first sight, wonderful landscape and photo! in my FAVOURITES!
Hi there, vicleaf. It's a destination that I've really wanted to take in for some time, and I am determined to go back. Thanks for taking the time to stop in and leave a comment. You've got some excellent looking offerings in your gallery, as well. I'll be poking around in it, for sure.
find us a nice snake while you are poking around, please.
another nice one. LOL, though: a desolate road that seems to go to nowhere. NOT where I'd be happy to have found myself unexpectedly! Did you keep going along this road, or turn around and head back through the flat lands?
Go find your own snakes. I'm too busy looking for tarantulas.
Thank you, kamalyn. I drove down the road a couple of miles or so, but decided, for the sake of my schedule, that I'd best turn around. I was determined to be in Tucumcari that night to catch the elusive wild neon thereabouts. For all I found, I may as well kept going along this road, to get some better close-ups of these perfectly marvelous buttes. Oh well.
We Want Snakes!!!
We're reasonable people though and willing to compromise: a snake fighting a tarantula would be acceptable.
Larry took my snake! WAAAAH!
Wow, looks like a place you could easily get lost in. Good thing you stayed on the road...even if it did not go anywhere. Nice soft lighting on this one!
lol, Guy. I'm glad you're so able to make a good situation of what you find. This makes you a very agreeable sort, and always welcome.
Would a Gila monster be a suitable substitution, Nawitka?
I was wishing I could take a lot more time, JF. The American southwest was known for landscapes from which people might never come back. Plenty of wrong turns to be taken. I really liked how this one came out with the distant sunlight.
Great shot and place N1W...
Thank you, Alireza Javaheri.
Hello, Marion. Thanks for stopping on by and leaving the nice comment.
Been there countless times and still love the place; this is one of the best perspectives I've ever seen
....thought this is along the Valley of Gods road but i see that is besides. A very exciting scene.
