una foto dalla composizione intrigante per via della bella curva del fiume.
I colori sono caldi, esattamente quelli di un autunno splendido e la gestione della luce fatta su toni morbidi che rendono la scena pił familiare.
Ciao e buona giornata

Beautiful! I almost forgot how beautiful Taos is. We went camping there one summer only to wake up in the morning to find bear tracks a few feet from our tent, scary! Love the colors of those trees. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

The wonderful autumnal foliage, the river and the sky make a great landscape.

I love pretty landscapes like this one very much. The river running through hills is almost always a good subject to take photo of. I like the bright yellow trees on its banks as they create not only very much contrast to the settings but also add loads of charm to the whole picture. Good POV, framing and well balanced colors.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

This is such a beautiful time of the year in New Mexico. The trees are stunning and I like the curve in the river taking my eye to the river bank in the distance. Beautiful.
Kind Regards, Ann

Hello Ray, looks like a great place to camp. Nice view of the winding river and the fall colors are splendid.

This is a very nice reminder of Fall. Although I am not in a hurry to get back to Fall, I can appreciate its beauty in photos. The bend in the river is a definite asset of the photo.
