Rockhound State Park & Florida Mountains New Mexico landscapes

Wondrous rocks of Rockhound & Florida Mountains

Over the course of three hours in the desert southeast of Deming, New Mexico covering over 50 miles, many of it dirt road, I was treated to various views of both Rockhound State Park and the Florida Mountains. These have unusual names, but perhaps because of their unusual rock formations. I was actually being paid to enjoy these views as I actually in the midst of a six location rural land real estate photo shoot. Even though it was of course hot, the weather was otherwise near ideal for day time landscape photography with plenty of clouds and mountains on the horizon in most directions. I was quite busy driving to all these locations, but I did take time to pause, and realize the amazing desert environment I was all out all alone in.

The Road - San Juan County New Mexico HDR Landscape Photography

Find this Road in San Juan County New Mexico

On a recent rural land photography shoot in the Navajo Dam area, the road to the property was a beauty for driving: winding and sweeping between mesas with good pavement and sight lines. Even though I was just in my Jeep Renegade Trailhawk, that is designed to shine more offroad than on, it was still a great drive. I made this HDR landscape photo to show that New Mexico indeed has some great driving roads.

New Mexico Jeep Renegade Trailhawk real off roader

New Mexico Jeep Renegade Trailhawk real off roader

Not a shopping mall Jeep!

Those that know me, know that I love cars, well, special cars.  Not all have to be as special as my beloved Aston Martin Vanquish (some day!), but even just the ability to go anywhere, do anything is enough.  Getting serious speed in a car is not that affordable, especially for newer models.  However, getting serious offroad ability is.  When I traded in my faithful and much loved Mazda3 sedan in March for the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk you see here, I was giving up great, affordable on road driving dynamics for the ability to drive offroad anywhere a stock vehicle could.

Real Estate Photography in Bernalillo, New Mexico

Back on a real estate photography assignment for Susan and Mark Ryerson in Bernalillo, New Mexico, I got to enjoy the Sandia Mountain view the next owner will get to on a daily basis!  I can really appreciate a good view and a nice backyard as well.  This was a nice straight forward real estate shoot, with the only obstacle being a sleeping cat on one bed, but I told Susan to just market that room as a good place to take a cat nap!

New Mexico Rural Land Photography Rio Rancho Sandy Sunset

Yet another week started out with time in the high desert of central New Mexico out on a rural land photography assignment for Hemingway Land Company in remote, northwest Rio Rancho.  This area off of Northern Blvd was a little more to the southeast than I had been to before.  It was sandier with less brush covering everything.  It's rare to see sandy desert in this area of New Mexico.  It caught my eye to make a photograph featuring the sand itself, as seen above.

New Mexico Rural Land Photography Torrance County Forested Sunset

Back in Torrance County New Mexico on a rural land photography shoot for Hemingway Land Company, at a property much more covered in trees than I typically encounter.  The last time I had hardly any open space to make photos with a view from.  This time there was a good swatch of open land that allowed me to make landscape and sunset shots to help the client sell this rural land property fast!  How fast?  Well, read the Google review about how much my photographs and drone video help sell his New Mexico rural land properties.
