You always seem to capture the essence of the Southwest perfectly! I always enjoy receiving your photos
Rena, we really try to get the best possible shots and since Mother Nature likes to show off her artistry on a daily basis here, we’re constantly waiting with cameras ready. xo
Hi Karma Gal, thanks so much!!! xo
Home on the range looks inviting. Good one, Thanks

Your heart is in these photos capturing this moment in time forever. Beautiful.
Phoebe, we really look at these photos and all of our articles as a scrapbook celebrating our love and memories of the Southwest. Thanks so much for the sweet comment! xo
We look forward to your photo essays each month as they draw us into your world of big skies, nature and delightful insight into how you’re spending your time. While I realize you are missing travel it is obvious that, with each image, you are both unquestionably in love with your home surroundings.
Hi Chile, you’ve described our infatuation perfectly. It’s true love!
I could watch these clouds roll by all day long. And how marvelous that you caught a red, white and blue sunset. Many thanks for sharing such beauty.
Deborah, thank you for such a lovely comment. We’ll have more images at the end of August and hopefully more cloud time lapse – Amy’s favorite, too!
