Here's a few:

Had one of the most spectular sunsets at the Rio Grande Nature trail overlook the other day. Was also lucky enough to get a pretty nice rainbow


27

Three tripods, three cameras under Casa Grande just off the Lost Mine Trail. The clear skies were accompanied by bitter cold and harsh winds. The tripods were set low with rocks piled around the legs to keep them from moving. Did I mention it was cold? Two cameras to zoom, and one creating a timelapse of the event...

I have a few more days here so I hope to add to these

Cerro Castellan

Terlingua

Then I got lucky.  A young bobcat came up from the river not far from Daniels right where I had seen the Javelinas not 30 minutes before.  Guess the piglets might be potential menu items.

Today is the last day for nominations (unless I change my mind because I don't get around to making all of my nominations). I will lock the topic sometime tonight after 8:00PM.

Made it back in time for the sun setting in the Window...

Modestly post one or two myself. This of Pulliam Peak and ridge from my trip report on Lost Mine Peak. Hazy sunny day made some neat lighting with the fall colors and rocks
