Last week I hit the road a bit more than usual and got the opportunity to experience more of beautiful New Mexico. The land, the light, and the culture possesses a loud, spiritual voice that is captivating. Once there, exploring, it is easy to understand what drew so many amazing artists to this special land to create their art.
My journey started in Bosque Del Apache to help teach a workshop that centered on the wildlife that calls the refuge home. It was a fast paced, fun few days with some very enthusiastic photographers.
After that I took two days to scout for NEPW’s workshop that will be here in December. I made it to White Sands National Monument, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and some locations in between. 800 miles in a couple days was exhausting but, visually New Mexico is inspiring and stunning.
I carried the EM5II with me at all times. It was the perfect travel companion as I made my way around some of the landscape and towns. Small, lightweight, and discrete makes this camera set up very desirable for travel photography but, nothing about its size leaves me feeling less capable of creating images in big, bold color or monochrome that will last forever.
