So, as it turns out, we ended up (officially) with 10 inches of snow as a result of our weekend snow storm! And, Mother Nature was kind enough to provide some really pretty post-snow images.....
I really loved the look of the one ray of sunlight shining down on the mountain range out off the back of our house right after the snow stopped on Sunday. This would have been an absolutely perfect shot if only our neighbor's horse (or at least one!) would have been out at the corner of their pen, but, oh, well! I think it's pretty cool anyway, watching the snow covered mountains trailing off into the horizon.
This is really a different view of the same shot, just zoomed in. In this one, I again like the feel of the sun on the mountain with the homes in front of the mountain. It almost feels like Mother Nature is telling everyone things will be ok.
I was driving into the airpark after having been into town (Albuquerque) for a bit yesterday when I noticed how blue the sky was - against the white snow, it just made for one of those images where you can just see how crisp and clean the air was! No enhancements to the image either - this is the true color!
And, finally, this was yesterday's sunset sky. It was such a peaceful and gentle sunset, with the colors glowing behind the snowy mountain. Altho, if you compare this to the above shot, you can see the snow has already started to melt. Still, there's enough on the ground so that we'll have a snowy Thanksgiving!
