Early morning in Santa Fe, NM is the best time to capture our clear, high-desert light. The city is still and quiet. Tourists have not budged from their beds yet. Cool morning temps are accented by warm sunlight filtering through trees, wrapping shadows around mud-brown adobes. Canyon Road, a narrow busy street of shops and galleries, is empty at 7:00 in the morning. The occasional “local” jogs by, out for an early run with their dog. It’s a lovely town at this time of day, transporting you back to a neighborhood owned by native Santa Feans, children playing by the river, and the school bell ringing in the old brick one-room school-house on the hill.
