Georgia O'Keefe Country
Wednesday we drove toward Abiquiu, NM. This is the land where Georgia O'Keefe lived and painted in her later years. I can see why. As is very typical of this area, the clouds build up just about every afternoon and bring very dark skies. These dark skies, though, have cloud holes which light up the wonderful buttes and cliffs like a spotlight, making for much fun photography.
As we left and started climbing the mountain again toward Chama, the black clouds just broke loose with a terrific downpour, so that was exciting, too!
