Carlsbad, New Mexico Snow. 1-4-2013.

 There simply is something magical about the Desert when it snows. Everything becomes transformed, a peaceful, silent wonderland unfolds. We only average about 4" to 8" of snow on any given year here in southeastern New Mexico. We don't get to see scenes like this very often, and sometimes we can go multiple years without seeing a single snowflake. Winter has been good to us recently, I hope the trend continues.

I shot these photos with my new Canon EOS Rebel T3i...my Christmas present from my wife.

  1. Your annual snowfall is similar to valley & west mesa Abq, but I think it snows most years in the entire town. The view down the street in town, contrasted with the straight road in the desert, are really nice...I have to break down and buy a new camera soon!
