Grace Beyond Noise
There is a grace to the landscape that has the ability to relax and sooth even the busiest of travelers as it strips away the noise of the day, carrying it off to a distant horizon in one single great exhalation. I am reminded of this as we turn southward toward the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico. Taking in the view, I feel utterly calm and unburdened as I experience its meditative value. In black and white, the effect is exaggerated as the distractions of color vanish and leave us focused on the graceful curve of the mountain range as it twists away from us.
