Taos New Mexico

For the past 10 - 15 years I have dreamt of visiting New Mexico. My brother's to blame as he got me hooked on the Southwest Artists Magazine. I would go through each issue, savouring every page, admiring the colourful and diverse artwork, thinking "ah some day ...."

This past May I had the opportunity to join an "Arts & Culture" tour. For five glorious days we toured around the Santa Fe area. We were busy from morning to night. I took hundreds of photographs, as I tried to capture and experience as much as I could, not wanting to miss anything.

As I start putting the experience to canvas, I can relive the light, the colours and the essence of New Mexico, until my next trip.
