    This place near Farmington, New Mexico is simply unbelievable. Gorgeous. Highly worth a trip if you're ever in the area.

    All of the morning (blue sky) shots are with the a7 and either the Zeiss 55 or Zeiss 35 lenses. The evening shots (cloudy) are with the 28-70 kit lens.

    I don't want to clog up the site, so these are just a few of my favorites. I have a total of 33 posted on my site. Click here.

    Awesome images, Vince. I don't normally follow links (too much trouble :rolleyes: ), but in this case I just had to see what else you had shot. It's considerate of you not to "clog up the site" by posting them all, but I bet you had a hard time choosing which ones were "the best." I loved the sunset shots, though they all rock (pun intended). You should take more road trips, even if this one was bittersweet.

    Stunning stuff. I particularly like the petrified log shot and the sunset. Well done!

    Thank you, everybody! I was thrilled to get up there - I'm from New Mexico originally, but I had never been to this area. Turns out that many New Mexicans have never heard of Bisti, which is simultaneously a shame and a good thing.

    Is it not amazing that many times we miss the beautiful places just around the corner.

    For examaple, I know many people in Arizona who have never been to the Grand Canyon.

    Very, very true. I live in Wisconsin now, and I'm actively looking for these places here now. Gotta get out and live life!
