Fall At Its Finest
No matter how many years I experience autumn in New Mexico, it never gets old.
With the exception of the first two images, which were shot just up the road in Rio Rancho, these photos are from the Bosque in Corrales.
There is a short cut that I take to get through town a little faster. It's called La Ladera Road and it runs from the base of Meadow Lake hill and comes out near the Peralta Post Office on Hwy 47. If ever there was an unlit, twisty-turny, creepy road where the ditch witch may drown your children or where a ghost may appear in the backseat of your car, this is it.
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.
San Ysidro Church
This is the Old San Ysidro Church and Cemetery in Corrales, New Mexico. It is known as the "Old San Ysidro Church" to differentiate it from the less old (and much larger) San Ysidro Church which is on Corrales Road.
Past It's Prime
I'm not sure that Meadow Lake ever really had a "prime". It's a weird place that boasts neither a meadow nor a lake. To be fair, there was once a man-made lake that someone must have gone through a lot of trouble to build for the five people who lived there. It is closed now and barricaded behind a razor wire topped chain link fence. I grew up in this area and don't recall it ever being open.
