My Quiet Place


I recently made a run to my quiet place to clear my mind. I took this shot standing at the edge of my property in Abiquiu an hour north of Santa Fe. I have five acres that one day will have a small house on it that will be used as a weekend get-a-way. If you walk about another 15 minute north of my property you would be a standing at the edge of the Abiquiu Lake.
