ABIQUIU IN WINTER

Abiquiu is a small New Mexican village on the Rio Chama about 15 miles from the confluence with the Rio Grande. Its most famous resident was Georgia O'Keeffe, whose paintings turned fantastical local sites into icons. At the high elevation (6500 feet), winter often brings snow to the desert, giving a particular sense of serenity. I recorded these images over a five year period at Plaza Blanca, Ghost Ranch, Sierra Negra and our yard.
