South of the border
« on: April 25, 2024, 04:42:42 pm »

The state border that is. My wife and I took a mini trip to Santa Fe this week. We ate and drank well, did some hiking, shopping, and I got out to take some photos.

The April 22 moon alignment worked well with the St. Francis Cathedral


The Nambe church. My wife's uncle helped rebuild it to this version in the 70s.




Santuario de Chimayo
Harsh mid day light but I thought it worked out ok considering.

Thanks guys!
The moon shot was fun and I was the only one out there around the plaza with a tripod and a big lens. It attracted some attention and while I was waiting for the moon to appear people would ask what I was shooting. Then when it came out everyone around me gasped and pulled out phones and even a couple of SLRs and were all into it like we were a photo tour or something.
Then later in the evening a random person on the street asked how my photos came out.
It was pretty different from my usual solo lunar excursions.
