THE Trip, Organ Mountains, Las Cruces, New Mexico, Revisited

Copyright 2010, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Yesterday Man and I drove to the end of Lohman Road here in Las Cruces.  Mission, get closer to the mountain, away from all the power lines, attempt to get a better photo(s).  There seems to always be some haze here, obscuring the mountains, just a little.  The end of the road is still a good 10 miles from the mountains.  It does not look that far viewed with the human eye, but, when you photo the mountains you need a lot of zoom and the haze makes itself known.  There were some great clouds yesterday to add a bit of interest.

Note:  I have edited these, sharpened a tad, auto correct, maybe a little contrast.  No color enhancements.  A bit of cropping, but you can still see power lines in the panoramic/wide shot (not taken with panoramic tool on the Sony).  I was able to crop them out of the close up (zoomed 20 times).  Remember that trick of clicking on the photo to see in a larger format, click your back button to return to Reflections. 



I hope you enjoyed viewing these as much as I enjoyed taking them.  Today, if we drove out to the end of Lohman, I am sure the view would be totally different, clouded by a dust storm.
