Is this a mellow photo or what?

Is this a mellow photo or what?  There’s just something tranquil and peaceful about this one.

I was in a zone… sitting in the lounge car of Amtrak’s eastbound Southwest Chief somewhere north of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I can do that on a train.  Sitting.  Staring.  Taking it all in.  And sometimes, I remember to pick up the camera and take a picture.  And sometimes, I’m so absorbed in taking in parts of America that more should experience that I don’t pick up the camera until it’s too late, if at all.

There’s just something about this one…  Mellow.  Peaceful.  Tranquil.

It’s one of those pictures that actually was helped by clouds – if the ground was in full sun, I don’t think it would work.  That the foreground is mostly in the shadow of the clouds takes your eyes to the clouds and the sky.  And that’s where mellow comes in…

I can get lost in it because there’s nothing to the picture, yet there is everything to the picture.

I’ve got this on a coffee mug.  You can find it here on Laughing Frog Images and make it your own your way.
