Thomas E. Hinds October 04, 2011

Beautiful color and comp! I really love this, Patti! Fine work once again! Is this possibly a road off of the low road to Taos? Just wondering! If it is then its a road to somewhere! LOL! (Feeble joke, really a great title, especially for NM scene). Amazing image! #9716941

Patti Coblentz October 04, 2011

Hey's a side road somewhere nearish the gorge, about 4 miles or so from it (away from Taos). We were looking for lightening that we saw in the near distance...the lightening went away, but the sun came out on this pretty, and very looong road. Who knows where this road went!
Anyway, glad you like it. Thanks! #9716947

Thomas E. Hinds October 04, 2011

Yes, I love it! And I remember all sides of Taos have that beautiful green and yellow flowering vegetation that you've captured so well! It really accentuates the image nicely (and I think that vegetation is one of the culprits of my allergies, LOL)! And that road really could go anywhere! LOL! #9716959

So does this mean we can get to EVERYWHERE from ANYWHERE...? HA! I love thinking about that one.

This image teaches another lesson. No matter WHAT, take it SLOW!

Love it Patti!
