An Early Monsoon Season
Monsoon season usually arrives in New Mexico in July and August but this year there were many stormy evenings in May, and then not as many as expected later in the summer. The dramatic clouds and rain often make for spectacular sunsets!
A Free Show That Never Disappoints
April of 2019 was a particularly prolific month for the New Mexico sky. Almost every day, I would look out my back door and see something amazing. It took a lot of work to narrow it down to only the best images. I mean, how do you pick which of your children is your favorite?
Sunset tip: It's all about the clouds. When guessing whether or not there's going to be a good sunset on any given night, look for clouds. Too many clouds could mean an all grey dud, but no clouds almost certainly means a very un-dramatic ending to the day.

Sunsets, A Year In Review
Every evening I sit at the dining room window and watch to see what my New Mexico sky is going to do. On some cloudless nights, it doesn't do much, but when those clouds roll in the show is a sight to behold. And all I have to do is step out my back door! I have so many of these sunset images that it would be silly to try to put them all in one blog post so these are my best shots from the month of March 2019.

Sunsets That Never Disappoint
Those of you who follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook know how many sunset photos I post throughout the year. In an effort to keep track of them all, I am archiving them by month. These are my best New Mexico sunset photos from February of 2019. All images were shot from my back yard in Meadow Lake, most while standing on my back steps or from the spot in the back 40 affectionately known as "Horse Poo Hill". All images shot with a MotoX4 and edited with Snapseed.

At The Top Of The World
The Magdalena Ridge Observatory is located atop a towering mountain overlooking the San Agustin Plains of New Mexico. Though the point of the observatory is to look up and not down, with otherworldly views that stretch to the horizon (beyond there be dragons...), the trip is worth while just for the sights alone.
I am DeAnna Vincent, fine art and portrait photographer in Los Lunas, New Mexico. These are the photos from my everyday adventures.
