The first stab of love is like a sunset, a blaze of color — oranges, pearly pinks, vibrant purples… ~ Anna Godbersen
Shout-out of appreciation to reader, Amber Reynolds, for today’s New Mexican sunset photo ~ Cypress Under a Flaming New Mexico Sky.
The tall slim tree known as the Mediterranean or Italian Cypress thrives in severe environments like the high desert of southern New Mexico.
You do remember where you’ve seen these trees before, don’t you?
Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh, while living in southern France, painted cypress trees in a number of works, including “Wheat Field with Cypresses.”
There’s no beating the drama of a New Mexican sunset or anything else in a New Mexico sky.
No denying southern France is beautiful. Yet, New Mexico’s clear and inky-black skies make it a stargazer’s dream.
So, what do you think . . .
