Scenic photos of New Mexico taken by my inexpensive pocket camera

(CLICK EACH PHOTO FOR ENLARGEMENT – – this is why I love New Mexico especially at dusk….colors, colors,colors.
Looking at the Sandia Mountains and Corrales in the distance, from Rio Rancho – – October 9, 2016 – 6:30 p.m. – temperature 62 degrees F  (16 degrees C)
This is my favorite spot, about a couple of blocks from our home.  What’s interesting is that clouds change their shape, density and reflection of the sun within few minutes, so you have to take a picture quickly to get the view you want, as shown in the following photo:

BELOW…..Full moon over the Sandia Mountains

While I was driving home north on Unser Blvd. to my former house in Enchanted Hills of Rio Rancho near Hwy 550, I noticed the full moon.  Thinking that it was too good to miss the shot, I stopped my car by the roadside, and took out my cheap pocket camera that I had 3 or 4 years ago.  This was what I call being at the right time at the right place. This was the best I could, using that camera:
