Ramah New Mexico Rural Land Real Estate Stunning Sunset HDR Photography

Golden Abandoned Corral of the High Desert

As soon as I saw the above old corral, I knew what shot I wanted to make once the sun went down a little more. I was out on a rural land photography shoot, very, very far off the beaten path, some 16 miles down dirt road, in an already remote area to begin with near Ramah, New Mexico. I like to wonder when I come across these abandoned things far from anyone things like, “when was this last actually used?” What do you think when you look at these photos? Let me know in the comments below. If you would like to have this view every day, prints on canvas, metal, or framed are available to bring the remote high desert to your home.

Agave Desert Sunset New Mexico Fine Art Photography

Landscape enemy saved by agave!

A third trip in 6 weeks to Valencia County, New Mexico where I met the enemy of the landscape photographer, i.e. a cloudless sky. However, these agave plants volunteered to be in the foreground of my photo to add some visual flair to what otherwise would have been a mediocre HDR sunset photo.

Rio Rancho Luxury Home Real Estate Photography stunning Sandia Mountain views

Luxury Home with Stunning Mountain Views in Rio Rancho

My photography work often takes me to nearby Rio Rancho, New Mexico, but never before have I seen views of the Sandia Mountains like this from a residential home. Step out into the backyard and there before you, totally unobstructed by anything artificial, loom the Sandias. Look to the north and south and catch a glimpse of the Rio Grande River. Inside this architectural home features those views from all the rooms on the east side of the home, with its open floor plan. Want to own these views? You have a choice of one night or forever as the owner does list this house as an AirBNB, but is also thinking of flat out selling it. If you value views, privacy, and an awesome home office space, this is the property for you!

Alamogordo Sunset Rural Land Real Estate Photography with the Sony a7R IV

Alamogordo Sunset Rural Land Real Estate Photography with the Sony a7R IV

First time out in the desert with the Sony a7R IV

My first rural land real estate shoot with the new Sony a7R IV mirrorless camera took me all the way down to Alamogordo, New Mexico. I was nervous about using this new camera along with the new Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 ART lens, so luckily the weather cooperated and the skies were great for the sunset shots in particular. How different is it shooting with the Sony mirrorless camera compared to my Nikon DSLR camera? A lot actually. It is hard to tell the exposure just by looking at the photo on the back of the Sony camera. However, with its EVF (electronic viewfinder) I can just look at the photo right in the viewfinder like using a mini monitor in totally protected viewing conditions. That took some getting used to! The Sony camera and Sigma lens are significantly smaller than my Nikon DSLR and huge Tamron lens I have used for the past 2 years. So I appreciate having lighter weight and a smaller system in general to carry around the open desert.

Rio Arriba County New Mexico Dramatic Clouds over Sierra Negra with Drone Video

Dramatic views of Sierra Negra mountain

This was a return for me to both Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, and also Sierra Negra mountain. I was first in this area over 18 months ago and made one of my favorite landscape photos of New Mexico, so much so I had a print made and it is hanging on the wall in the dining room. The skies were of a different level of drama this time featuring bold clouds, and therefore made the mountain look totally different. Also, I have drone video this time featuring the mountain in the background.
