On This Harvest Moon…

There is a full moon rising, lets go dancing in the light…

The Harvest Moon rises through the pink hues of Georgia O’Keefe Country in Northern New Mexico.  This signals the time of year in New Mexico, and I think most places, where we transition in a beautiful way into winter.  New Mexico has been blessed with ample rain showers this summer.  Bright yellow and purple fall wildflowers blanket the slopes.  The aspen trees are just starting to turn yellow up high in the mountains.  Elk are bugling.  The night air is cool and crisp.

They say “the grass is always greener on the other side of the mountain…”, or at least we perceive that.  After traveling up in the Utah desert this past week for some landscape photography, followed by some time in the San Juan Mountains in Southern Colorado, I returned home to Northern New Mexico and said to myself “stay home and photograph the beautiful fall colors!”.   This is not the first time I have had to relearn the lesson that beauty is all around me — as long as I open my eyes, and my mind.

Now its getting late and the moon is climbing high, I wanna celebrate, see it shining in your eyes…
