A few weeks ago, before the new job and while I was still enjoying a bit of new found freedom, I made a trip to New Mexico. I can absolutely say that New Mexico is one of my favorite places to spend my time off. Love the place, the people and the landscape.
I planned to visit friends and ended up in Abiquiu' right around sundown. I stumbled upon a small county rodeo taking place and I decided to stop in and see what I could see. I paid the ten bucks to park and loaded the cameras on my shoulder and off I went. I wasn't quite sure how close I would be able to get to anything but it turned out no one seemed to care at all. The light was amazing so, I watched and I waited.
The activity in the ring was just too far away, and I wasn't all that interested in that anyway. But the activity around the entry to the ring was pretty frantic. The light was great and I just spent time watching. This is one of my favorite images from the hour or so I spent there before the light went away.
