Aspen Glory in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains

Fall Serenity – fall foliage along a stream in Santa Fe

This is only my second full summer here in Santa Fe, New Mexico and I have recently found a new photo playground – up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

I first scouted the area the other week, then brought our photography workshop students up there for a sunrise shoot. A few days following the photo workshop I returned to spend more time photographing.

There is snow in the Santa Fe Mountains

A cold front that moved in overnight left some snow in the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains just east of Santa Fe, NM for the first time this season. I drove to an elevation of 10,000 feet and found the aspens just starting to change color.
