Thanks, Fred. That's what I like most about the West, but I don't the vistas are quite as clear as 20 years ago.Nice image Jim. Amazing how far you can see out west.
Yep, I could spend lots of happy hours just photographing the sky in New Mexico, especially at this time of year.Yep, the storms and clouds out here can be amazing!
All you have to do is ask...:wink:Great view....any shots of the opera itself? I've always wanted to go there but haven't taken the time.
I was splattered by a thunderstorm there 20 years ago, but the new roof and mezzanine are a godsend. They even keep the cool evening breezes at bay.Until a few years ago the opera was a crapshoot for patrons, in terms of whether they would get soaked by a monsoon rainstorm! There was always a roof over the stage itself, though.
Definitely upscale, with lots of catered tailgating before the show.
Relative to vistas of today vs. 20 or so years ago -- the pollution and haze of Albuquerque has clearly contributed to the problem, but farther north (or south) one can still literally see for hundreds of miles.
Very cool - when I was a kid we received all our OTA TV from NM and that place looked so neat when they'd run tv promos for the season lineup.All you have to do is ask...:wink:
Sorry about the trailers, etc., but it is hard to get a good perspective on this place, and cameras are not allowed inside the gate. It's a wonderful venue, and the productions are excellent...rivaling the Met.
