Since returning from our trip to Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks in early October, Jane and I are enjoying being home and catching up on delayed routine chores, like doctor and dentist appointments. The holidays are upon us and Jane had decorated our home accordingly. We’ve also been enjoying visiting with friends and sharing good cheer. Plans have been made for an overnighter to Santa Fe to enjoy a classical guitar symphony and stroll along the Canyon Road galleries on Christmas Eve.
In the meantime, I’ve not let my camera lie dormant in its case. On October 14th, I photographed the annular solar eclipse from the backyard. That was followed by a couple of short trips to the Bernardo and Bosque del Apache wildlife refuges. Then came an evening excursion to the popular “River Of Lights” exhibit at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens. And finally, in early December I journeyed to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory on the Plains of San Agustin for a night sky photography workshop with the Very Large Array antennae in the foreground.
Images from these late-year trips can be viewed in the “Latest Images” gallery.
I made another trip to Bosque del Apache right of after new year's and have added images from this excursion to the Latest Images" gallery.
