Sandia Mountain Monsoons
I have been inspired by the contribution from Tucson below. Monsoon season is happening in New Mexico too.
From our backyard we can see the Sandia Mountains east of Albuquerque. Saturday night there was a a heckuva storm happening up on the mountains. Directly to the north of us we could see the water coming down in sheets only a quarter of a mile away. However, we only got a few drops -- while the TV is blaring a flash flood warning for our very neighborhood. Further evidence of the volume of rain hitting the rocky slopes to the east can be found in the arroyo that runs right behind hour house.
On an entirely different subject, we just returned from a road trip to the Bay Area, via Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe, while hitting Yosemite and Death Valley on the way home. Many photos of course, to be seen in the gallery I put up, found here. Please enjoy.
Just a stick.

Here is my first photo upload. It's a blurry photo of my mom but I like the quality the blurriness gives. It is smaller than the actual size.

ch ch changes
Well, folks, what do you think of the various changes in photographica over the last few months? I think Cory is doing a terrific job, and I agree with almost every new feature and look enthusiastically.
My only reservation about the future of this site is the dropping off of commentary lately, especially since the addition of the different pages. I put some of this down to summertime and vacations and such--I know I have gone days without looking here while travelling and enjoying the hot weather. But I wonder how well the site is handling its growing pains with dozens of people joining each month and submitting pictures without taking the time to view other photos and saying something about them?
I challenge everyone to make at least one comment on a picture while you're here--either posting or just checking out the new stuff. It'll only take you a few moments and you might help someone with your observation/criticism.
This is a great site, but Cory can only do so much to make it so; it takes all of us to make it even greater.
