Santa Fe .......a big surprise and delight

 I  had  never visited Santa Fe until this winter when we were driving back from our trip to California. 

In my mind I pictured an arid desert landscape with cacti and rocks. Imagine my surprise when I viewed the gorgeous mountains  and scenery. The air was so clear and fresh. I didn't realize that the Rio Grand River came that far north.

We were fortunate enough to have weather that was comfortable enough to visit the galleries, admire the architecture and sit outside at a cafe and soak it all in.

I took a series of shots of the intricate old doors that I came across. Here is the first in the series Doors of Santa Fe. I wanted to convey a mood of richness of colour and joy that I felt as I admired these old doors
