Photograph of New Mexico State Road 14 looking back toward the Sandia Mountains.State Road 14 connects Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, and is part of a National Scenic Byway called the Turquoise Trail. In this photograph, I liked the textured layers of the mountains in the background as well as the sense of spaciousness created by the road leading away into the distance.

New Mexico—Sandia Crest

Photograph of the Albuquerque Basin from the Sandia Crest in New MexicoNew Mexico is very appealing for photography, a wonderful blend of dramatic skies, interesting terrain and different cultures. We returned for a week in October of 2015 to drive back roads and explore some areas we had missed on a previous visit. This is a view of the Albuquerque Basin from the Sandia Crest. The Sandia Mountains are on the eastern edge of the Rio Grande Rift Valley and form a dramatic backdrop for the city of Albuquerque.
