Dark valley, distant mountains

We were out for a walk just before sunrise, this morning, and turned along the bosque while the sunrise was catching the Ortiz mountains on the left – and Sandia Crest to the right about 50 miles away – while La Cieneguilla was still in late dawnlight.

My new pocket camera has a pretty solid 16X optical zoom – which would have been much sharper if I had my monopod along to shoot the Sandia photo at a slow speed.

In all, still a lovely autumn morning. Overnight rain here in the valley, snow on the mountains.
