Good place for a picnic

While in New Mexico with my dad, we took a trip through some BLM land.  We had a local fella along with us and he had mentioned if I wanted a good spot to take a panoramic picture, that I needed to hoof it out of the truck, up a slight rise and enjoy the view.  I’d say he was right!

While I took this shot in color, it had more of a classic feel to me in b/w with a bit of vignetting….

worth the hike

  1. These are so elegant, Mr. B…
    stunning processing, too!

    • Thanks Inky! I thought the original image was very pretty…. but that was it, just a pretty picture that anyone with a camera could have handled…. The black and white with the vignetting made it a bit more special to me and I’m glad you like it!!

  2. What a view – you can see for miles. I miss that!


    • Isn’t it awesome!! Quite a change from your seaside livin’!! That being said, there’s something to be said for smelling the salt air, too. 😉

  3. sweet view……

  4. Love that New Mexico landscape! Reminds me of when I went to Carlsbad.

  5. Me loves New Mexico too. I think I’m heading that way in January.
    And very nice job with the picture Derrick!
