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.

Leaves Changing in Tierra Amarilla New Mexico

Back out on assignment for Hemingway Land Company in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico near a small town called Tierra Amarilla, I was treated to the beginning of some fall foliage and distant snow capped mountain views. Rio Arriba County is my favorite in all of New Mexico for its majestic beauty ranging from mesas to lakes to mountains to forests. It was peaceful out here and the sweeping landscape was not a bad office for one late afternoon’s work! The only thing was the mud! See the photo at the bottom for what the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk looked like after just a brief drive in down the dirt/mud road!

New Mexico True Echo Amphitheater Fine Art Photos

New Mexico True Echo Amphitheater Fine Art Photos

Revisiting the photographs I made at Echo Amphitheater in Abiquiu, New Mexico I found some more that I wanted to edit and offer as fine art prints and commercial license usage for businesses that want to display a unique view of New Mexico natural wonder in their home or office for friends and clients to enjoy as well.  Standing in the base of the curved rock formation that produces the echoes the place is named for, I found the shape of the rock wall to be fascinating and photographed it from multiple angles.  If you have received a business card from me you have already seen my favorite angle of it (check it out here), but I like these for their partial views of the upper edge as well.

4K Drone Video Navajo Dam New Mexico

I was back in Rio Arriba County New Mexico shooting two rural land properties for Hemingway Land which brought me to the Navajo Dam area with Navajo Lake on one side of it and the San Juan River on the other.  Naturally I had my DJI Mavic Pro drone with me, but only had a little time to shoot some flyover video of the dam.

Echo Amphitheater in Abiquiu New Mexico True

Echo Amphitheater in Abiquiu New Mexico True

My work photographing rural land properties in New Mexico has taken me to Rio Arriba County many times.  I have passed by Echo Amphitheater at least twice before, but did not have time to stop.  Third time being the charm, on the return from a property shoot on the way to another, right there was Echo Amphitheater with time on the schedule to explore this great natural wonder, and if I may say so, produce some stunning images of a place that is certainly New Mexico True.
