There are far fewer gorgeous sunrises here than there are sunsets. I’m not sure why that is. Adam, my partner on the blog, says it has something to do with the morning atmosphere not being conducive to creating clouds, thus giving the rising sun less of a “screen” to project itself upon. But whatever the reason, because of their relative scarcity, I think I may appreciate them even more than our beautiful sunsets. When I’m going about the business of my morning animal chores and the rooms fill with that tell-tale golden, rosy light, I stop whatever it is that I’m doing to watch the sun make her glorious entrance over Truchas Peaks.
Truchas Peaks, actually a series of three peaks to comprise what most of us think of as one mountain, stands 13,024 feet at its highest point, making it the second highest peak in New Mexico. A part of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Truchas Peaks majestically watches over my little village of Truchas. Since it is just to the east of my house, I almost always take photos of it whenever I’m shooting sunrises. So it is the most logical place to begin this sunrise series of blog posts.
I give you some of my favorite sunrises over Truchas Peaks:
Love to you all,
