A quick change from a cold overcast day to a clear one revealed this dramatic change over the mountain peaks (9,000’) These are the peaks of the Organ Mountains which in turn are part of the southern Rocky Mountains of New Mexico,U.S.A.. and this view is only a part of the entire row of mountains I can see every day from my backyard and at my dining room table. You’d think I would have taken a series of wonderful shots at that time but the scene changed so rapidly, I was lucky to pull this rabbit out of the hat, so to speak. We had to pay extra for the view when we built the house. Now we call it our “Thousand Dollar View”! This was taken on my Canon Eos Rebel XTi with a 28-300mm lens.
