Five Minutes More

This morning finds me in Albuquerque, NM to visit family. It's been years since I've seen my cousins. And I've never meet their kids. I can't wait!

I was supposed to wake up much earlier today to go for a run and scout out some sunrise locations for tomorrow. I got in way to late for that. Now I've got to go eat some terrific New Mexican food at Weck's with out the benefit of pre-burning the calories. If you ever find yourself in Albuquerque, I highly recommend a breakfast at Weck's.

Yesterday the sunset in Northern New Mexico was absolutely spectacular. I couldn't bring myself to pull of the freeway and find a good vantage point. Sometimes I'm way to goal oriented, and last night my goal was to get to Albuquerque. I guess I should have taken the time since I wimped out on an early rise this morning. Hopefully this evening is as amazing.

This picture is from the archives and was taken near Crested Butte, CO along the Rocky Brook Rd.

The amount of sleep required by the average person is five minutes more.

Nice capture. I'd like to live there. Maybe fix up the cabin a bit first.

I agree with Mizener about sleep.

Have a great time in NM. Hope to see you at the canyon.

Wouldn't it be fun to get in a raft and just cruise down that river? Have fun on your getaway. Looking forward to some awesome sky shots...

There are parts of Scotland that look very much like your lovely shot. I really enjoy your photos Russ, thanks
