Travel File: Clouds & Churches

I’ll get back to my posts about our California road trip soon enough.  But for today, I am sharing a few photographs from our recent trip to Jemez Springs, New Mexico.  I’m a total sucker for churches when it comes to photography.  Especially catholic churches.  Here are a few gems I ran across while traveling through the mountains this week.

This first had an exceptional location; nestled against a mountain range in the middle of Jemez Springs:

I asked my husband to turn around and go back, which he obligingly did.  (He’s totally used to it by now)

I fell in love with the doors before our truck was even stopped.  I love me some turquoise! The clouds, the clouds, the clouds.  I know.  I’m always talking so dreamily about the New Mexican clouds.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:  the clouds in New Mexico are not like clouds anywhere else.
