El Morro National Monument

We stopped at this National Monument in New Mexico, looking for a reprieve from the long winter. Instead, it snowed as we slept while back home it was 60˚. The snow did make it fun to do some interesting photography, though.

I have many photos from this spectacular place, which is tucked in the wilds of New Mexico. I’ll tell you more about this place a bit later.

    Very nice shot. The sky is gorgeous especially with the rough hewn texture of the rock against those clouds.

    Wow, stunning, this is absolutely gorgeous! A beautiful place to stop (and the snow just added to it’s beauty)!

    Great to see some shots from out on the Hootowl trail as it was called it the old western movies. Love that landscape.

    That is so striking! Great shot and remember – it’s a dry snow 😉

    Textures, contrasts, colors and composition are perfect! I’d frame it if it were mine.

    Looks like a lovely place. Doesn’t it drive you crazy when the weather flip-flops on you like that? At least you got some lovely pictures…hope to see more from the area!
