A Forest By The River
My family moved to Los Lunas, New Mexico (from Albuquerque) in 1982. In all these years, I have only ever shot one portrait session in the Los Lunas Bosque and that is the only time I've gone down there.
On October 21, 2018, Johnpaul and I decided to explore the forest in our hometown.
Cottonwood trees take on unique shapes depending on their environmental conditions. The trees in the Los Lunas Bosque are tall and thin. They appear to be dancing. There is a well maintained trail through the Bosque but the undergrowth is very thick, especially as you approach the water. On this day, the river was very low and almost impossible to get to so we didn't push our luck. The trees were wonderful though.
