Stormy skies and glimpses of sun always make for an exciting colour contrast. And the yellow trees enhance that even more.

fantastic autumn colours and beautiful sky.

The fall colors still seem to be in full swing, though I notice you took this about a month ago, and I'm glad. That brush in the foreground is the same stuff we have millions of here along the shores of the Great Salt Lake. I didn't realize it was also prolific in New Mexico.

Isn't that just wonderful? Taos is on my bucket list. It was on my list before I heard of bucket lists! Now I know I simply must see it. Thanks.

The autumn colors look striking against the dramatic sky. I wonder if you got any rain later. We're still holding out for some...Thanks for visiting my SWF post. I always enjoy your comments.

Magnificent photo. The leaves lighter than the sky creates such a great contrast and exciting mood. So well seen and photographed. Perfect exposure.

Lovely! Such a beautiful area -- we were in Santa Fe and Taos one year about this time. I loved it so much!
