Warmth Beyond The Gate.


As I have said before I just love the look of adobe in the snow. I think the old gate adds to the overall beauty of the shot.

Those adobe buildings, so characteristic for Santa Fe, are very nice!

Great composition! The wall is nice color with snow.

A funny mix, adobe and snow. In my city we have big adobe walls but the weather is warm always.

I agree about the gate. I wonder about the structure behind it...a house? Hope it's in good condition,

Leif Hagen said...

Ok, finally it's sinking in. Santa Fe also has snow. I guess I'm a little slow. But then, everywhere seems to have lots of snow these days!

This shot took me straight back to San Pedro de Atacama in Chile, a small village with lots of small houses like that in adobe. I remember eating my birthday dinner in one of those houses, a restaurant called (no surprise) "Adobe." Thank you for many nice comments on my blog, and if you check out my post today, you'll see something you wished for :)

A very serene picture....with all kinds of possibilites behind that gate.

Lúcia said...

I agree with you, they are beautiful with the white contour. ;-)
Have a nice day!

Sharon said...

I agree. Lovely shot.

Luis Gomez said...

Randy, it truly looks nice and cold!

Magpie said...

I've wandered over your way and like what I see. Your photos are wonderful. I also like the snow against the adobe...like the snow on a cactus. Such a contrast. I'll be back for more.

Kathy said...

I like this weathered gate too. You think it might deserve a closeup?

VP said...

A very good title for a great picture. I wonder how the snow is almost perfectly mirroring the height of the wall.

valeria said...

For me it is quite stricking to see Santa Fe under the snow. Love it!

Jarart said...

Oh yes, this is beautiful!

RedPat said...

i love the softness of the adobe which seems to be enhanced by the snow border on the top. Nice one!

NYC In Photographs said...

It sure does look intriguing. The textures of the door are really interesting as it seems rough and beaten, compared to the adobe.

Great shot!

P.S.: Did you get the snow I sent you? =)

Jacob said...

Very nice, Randy. Adobe looks good in the desert and I think the snow adds a surprising and fun contrast.

Nice shot!

Andreas Hensel said...

Fantastic mood, the warm coloured wall and the snow around...great shot Randy!

Johnny said...

Una puerta interesante que rompe el ritmo del muro!!!

If I didn't know better now, I'd say this was sand!

Jack said...

I don't think of adobe buildings being in the snow. but of course, they are. Nice.

Great title and framing of the shot.

Best wishes

I love the door the best!
It's full of character.

Halcyon said...

I like the snow and adobe combo as well. Such a nice scene!

T. Becque said...

I agree. Beautiful architecture.

Sequim Daily Photo said...

We don't see adobe around here, I had to look it up to learn more about it. Great shot:-)

Allison said...

Lovely color. What a welcoming entrance!

Regina K said...

You are correct, adobe and snow are a beautiful combination.

JM said...

As I've said before it's a great combination.
