A fine lovely evening in an old Taos setting

Oh, the Terrible High Desert

in Taos

If it weren’t for the big brown ants and the no-see-ums, this scene would be a paradise! (Let’s pretend.)

What a nice shot! Especially with the rainbow extending out from the house.

I haven’t seen a rainbow out here in the “East” for eons. Just endless “con trails” from the darned alien tour craft. I’m tired of living in a Disney World for some other civilization!

Glad you like it!

We have scads of rainbows out here, probably because of the clear air. After all, all you need is a little rain falling down somewhere and sunlight hitting it. Back East it’s hard to see things that are several miles away because of the haze. But you know, you’re right: I can’t recall ever seeing that many rainbows in MD. Interesting…

Definitely watercolor material. I love the way the rainbow is coming out of those monsterous clouds. We need rain here ….the swamps are drying up and the gators are on the move to find more…EEK

This picture has so many gifts in it John. I especially like the shadows on the hills and again on the side of your house and in the garden and ……Sunshine and Shadows and yes a Rainbow! Thank You .

Thank you. I’ve taken lots of photos of this view, because it usually has all those things in it, except the rainbow, of course. This really is a beautiful spot.
