Another photography workshop, this time a non-shooting affair with Joyce Tenneson at Santa Fe Photography Workshops, provided an excuse to photograph in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico. In a sense, this represented a return to my youth, since I spent the summers of 1963-66 on the staff of Philmont Scout Ranch northeast of Santa Fe, visiting Taos a couple times in that period. That was the first time I saw sepia-toned photographs, so the several sepia tonings below are sort of a tribute to those memories.

|A Winter Without Snow. New Mexico had been in drought, with nary a drop of precipitation, since October 2005. The mountains, normally deep in snow, were barren.|
|Churches, respectively: Santuario de Chimayˇ (1816), Church of San JosÚ de Gracia in Las Trampas (ca. 1750), and First Presbyterian Church in Taos (modern).|
