Water World

Hidden Pond, Lemitar, New Mexico

We may not have much water in NM, but what we do have sure makes for some great reflections of the spectacular skies we enjoy here.

Especially around sunset.

"The Upholder of the Cycles which supports the whole of Life, is water. In every drop of water dwells the Godhead, whom we all serve; there also dwells Life, the Soul of the "First" substance - Water - whose boundaries and banks are the capillaries that guide it and in which it circulates. More energy is encapsulated in every drop of good spring water than an average-sized PowerStation is presently able to produce."

-Viktor Schauberger

Bridges of Socorro County

Rio Puerco Bridge
Bernardo, New Mexico

... at sunset.

The Rio Puerco Bridge at Bernardo, NM, is located about 50 miles south of Albuquerque or about 30 miles north of Socorro just off of I-25. Go west at the Bernardo exit about 1 mile.

Can't miss it. Really.

As I'm shooting this series of photos I'm thinking, all I need is a DeLorean like the one in the "Back to the Future" movies to come roaring across the bridge from one dimension into another. Instead, I get a friendly vato puttering along in his old beat up red Toyota pickup, trying to get home before the storm hits. I took the picture but was a little bummed out at first until I looked at this particular photo later and realized how well the light flames of the sunset blended with the silhouette of his truck.


I just figured it had to be some of that old New Mexico magic mojo at play. In this case covered in a red secret sauce paint job.

It works for me.
