Theme Day: Mailbox


It's Theme Day once again on City Daily Photo. This month's theme is "Mailbox." I thought I would share my favorite trio of boxes. They sit next to my favorite tree which are on the highway between Santa Fe and Taos. Happy Sunday everyone!

WOW. Gorgeous!
Such an outstanding composition. That beautiful tree, the wonderful sky and the colorful mailboxes, in typical american style, sitting next to the road.

Allison said...

I really love the composition of this picture. Does it stay that brown all summer long? Or will your tree have more greenness to it at some point? The mailbox colors are wonderful in contrast. And such a sky!

The whole photo is terrific because of the composition. So many wonderful images together which makes the mailboxes interesting.

Tamera said...

Oh my goodness Randy, I posted an almost identical photo a couple of summers ago! (http://csdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2009/06/mailboxes-part-deux.html) Great minds really do think alike! :o) Funny how mailboxes in the American west all seem to look alike.

Jeroen said...

excellent picture!
Very nice composition, and the colors are really expressing the heat of the desert.
Maybe a black and white version could be more dramatic...

Photohunter said...

Ein wunderschönes Foto, der blaue Himmel im Hintergrund mit den Wolken geben dem Bild einen besonderen Ausdruck.
