Happy New Year to all!
Here in the Mid-Atlantic we are in that muted, almost colorless period between the firebrand explosion of fall and the winter wonderland that comes with the first snowfall. I have chosen for the first image of this New Year a complete contrast from what is outside my window. This simple shot is a great example of the bright, cheerful colors of New Mexico.
Back in September we spent a week in New Mexico visiting Santa Fe, Taos and some of the surrounding towns and pueblos. This image is from Taos and shows part of a gate painted in the typical bright Turquoise that is used in this area. Here it is in wonderful contrast with an unpainted wooden fence from which is also hanging a garland of dried chili peppers.
