Southern New Mexico just doesn’t ever really disappoint me in my travels down there. The landscape becomes much simpler as the trees of the Northern 1/2 of the state give way to pure Chihuahuan desert in the southern part of the state.
This creates ample opportunity for sky captures that are incredible as well as for some simple and fun landscape photography.
Myself and Sara took a hike in Organ Mountains National Monument to enjoy some public lands and the beauty that Southern New Mexico has to offer. The trail we took (Soledad Canyon) didn’t have the most expansive views of the tallest peaks of the range, but there was ample opportunity to give some ideas a try.
All in all it was another great trip south. I can’t wait to make my way back to this beautiful desert landscape next summer for monsoon season!
I'm a trans photographer and filmmaker based in New Mexico. I love adventure and travel and exploring my state. I chase down incredible storms and skies. I advocate for good mental health and for my trans siblings.
